Hike Old Rag with CCW

Location: Washington Start: May. 04 2019 7:15 am End: 6:30 pm

An all day event, in conjunction with the Cornell Club. The hike up Old Rag in the Blue Ridge Mountains is one of the best in the East and very popular with CIW students. The lower half of the ascent is on steep, wooded switchback trails; upper elevations are rocky and require tough but very enjoyable scrambling; the views are fabulous. Prepare the night before: lunch, snacks, plenty of water, sunscreen, and mosquito repellent should be carried, and hiking shoes or treaded sneakers should be worn.

Transport:  Provided by alumni, who pick up and drop off at the Center.

Small fee per person to cover National Park Service fees. Participation: unlimited, but students must pre-register on a posted sign-up sheet to arrange transportation.
