MAY 22, 2019 (WED), 9:50 AM, POWHATAN STATE PARK, C/3
Jim and Meredith Henry (email@example.com or 804 513-0365) will be leading a 5+ mile hike in Powhatan State Park using new trails along with some of our old favorites. The hike will be moderately difficult with one long, steep climb and a few other challenging inclines. It is suggested that all wear hiking boots and carry walking sticks. For interested participants, bring a bag lunch to eat on the river bank at end of the hike.
From Richmond, go to the interchange of Rt. 288 and Patterson Avenue (Rt. 6), driving West along Rt. 6 approximately 13 miles, taking a left onto 522 South. After crossing the river, continue for 1.9 miles looking for the Powhatan State Park sign. Turn right onto Rt. 617. From Southside, take US 60 West from Midlothian, then US 522 North to a left turn onto Rt. 617. Travel on Rt. 617 for 1.4 miles, turning right into the park. Once reaching the park pay the parking fee or display your state park pass. Then follow the entrance road to the first left, turning onto River Launch Road. At its end, meet in the parking area by the boat launch. Restrooms are available at 3 points during the hike.
