New River Trail Fitness Walk – Galax
January 17 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
New River Trail Fitness Walk
Rainfall will cancel the walk in most cases.
Enjoy a brisk fitness walk on the New River Trail. Gather in the restroom area just beyond the caboose for a fast-paced fitness walk led by a VA State Park volunteer interpretive guide.
The walk goes to the Cliffview ranger station and back for a total of four miles along Chestnut Creek. The mostly shaded, crushed-stone trail is 12-feet wide with almost no elevation change. You are welcome to walk less by turning back at any point. Participants finishing the walk will receive a free day pass for the Galax Recreation Center (think pool, gym, etc.!).
Please note that there is a $7 fee for parking in State Park lots unless you have an annual pass.
The group size will be limited to 12 and pre-registration will be required. To register, please visit www.sweetmountainways.wixsite.com/visit
