How a College Professor Spends Free Time - Buck Hollow Trail

Real Estate Agent with The Wilson Team - Keller Williams


I wasn't on the trip in this video, but I've always loved working with the trail crews. So watching this video brought back pleasant memories!

The 'professor' in this video is actually a college professor, the PhD type, but also my brother.  So, I've had the best guide and the best instructor on the trails of the Shenandoah National Park. 

If you are in Virginia and close to the Appalachian Trail, especially if you are an avid hiker, consider a little trail work.  The trails don't maintain themselves!  The Potomac Appalachian Trail Club maintains a lot of the trails in the Shenandoah area in northern Virginia.  Check out their site for trail maps.

It's almost warm enough for me to get back out on the trails - I'm a fair weather hiker!  What I miss the most - the quiet!

Driving from where I live in Ashburn Virginia, with all the hustle and bustle of suburbia and big city (Washington DC) rush hour traffic, toward Shenandaoh National Park ... I could always feel the stress melting away!  Literally.

When I got out of the car at my destination, it was so quiet and relaxing.  Even a few hours hiking or working on the trail reduced my stress and re-energized me!

My favorite trail?   Buck Hollow - Buck Ridge
Check it out ... it's been maintained by the some of the same crew as in the video, including The Professor!  Some of his best work is on upper Buck Hollow trail.
