Hike to a Flower Spectacle of Glowing Bluebells
Hike to one of the area's "must-see" and most colorful flower spectacles: acres of glowing Virginia Bluebells at Bull Run Regional Park in Centreville, VA.
This event is limited to HCW members and their guests.
Short hikers will trek nearly 2.5 miles along the Bluebell Trail. Long hikers can continue for roughly two more miles on the Bull Run-Occoquan Trail with the group or continue on your own. The hike's co-leaders are Harvard Club Board Member Chengyan Zhang and Harvard Club Member (and Walking Washington, DC guidebook author) Barbara Saffir.
Wear boots or sneakers, preferably with a lug pattern on the sole for a better grip. The trails are flat with some ground-level boardwalks and short pedestrian bridges that should cover much of the sometimes muddy parts of the path. We recommend wearing shoes that you wouldn't mind getting muddy. Bring your camera, too!
If you have any questions or concerns about your ability to hike three miles at a moderate pace and safely keep up with the group, please contact us at 202-337-1300 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
