Let's take the road less traveled again this week. There will be mud, and ambient light is low, so bring a red or green headlamp.  

This is a low-profile hike from Hunter Mill Road to Rt 7 via the CCT / Difficult Run trail.  Most of the trail is not paved, and there will be mud spots to navigate.  Portions are past private back yards, so we'll maintain light / noise discipline at those spots.  

If it's too muddy, we can still do the standard walk to Reston Town Center.  With daylight savings time, Karens will be about.  No full kit, but helmets and NODs are good protection from those errant drunk cyclists.  

Standard boilerplate follows;
PM me if you need directions to the step off point.
Return be after sunset, so bring a head lamp or flashlight if you're scared of the dark.  NODs are are in season.  
Leashed K9's are welcome.  We will see deer and other critters so use your judgement.
Wear good boots / socks.  
Bring water.
Return trip will be in the dark.  Bring lighting of your choice.  
PM me if you want off the notifications list.

If there's a chance of a rare WhiskersTheCat sighting, I won't won't risk scaring him off by mocking him with memes!

Kid’s soccer practice is wrapping up just now so I won’t make it this week.  

Will rejoin y’all one day.

I enjoyed the hike.

Neat terrain, and got to travel
at night using ambient light -
(something I haven't done
regularly in over 25 years).

I didn't want to "cheat" by pulling
out my light or map unless necessary,
but thanks for leading the way.

Good stroll.
