We went to synagogue yesterday, stayed a while to chat, then came home for lunch, so excursion started quite late, limited time.

Again went to Lake Accotink Park,facilities area. Ice on lake, but its not snow on top of that, and some water is visible. headed south on the CCT - paved trail, which was clear of snow. Went past the dam, past the parking lot south of the dam, and on the trail through the woods - big ridge with houses on top just east of Accotink creek was picturesque. We made it to the first big foot bridge over the creek, which I gather is less than halfway from the facilities to Old Keene Mill rd. It was getting dark, so we turned back. Saw a big group of deer bound across the trail. Not many other folks out, but did see one cyclist.

Sounds like a great day out. Sometimes the trails can be pretty muddy this time of year.

Can I put in a plug for volksmarching. If you like to take the family out hiking they set up different trails and give maps to follow. The events put you out on the trail with like minded folks but you are on your own-it's not all one big group start . AVA.org will get you a list of clubs and events.
