What we'll do
This 8-mile circuit hike might be an ice hike. Little Devils Stairs is a strenuous hike in the northern section of Shenandoah National Park. Well take a steep climb through a scenic gorge, followed by a long and relatively gentle woodlands hike back to the parking area. Well make multiple crossings of a creek, which may or may not be flowing, and if the weather is willing we may see some frozen waterfalls and icicles. This hike is for experienced hikers only; the initial climb is quite steep, with 1500 feet of elevation gain in less than 2 miles. The total elevation gain for the hike is about 1800 feet. The trip leader will advise on likely trail conditions the day before. Meet at 8:30 a.m. in the East Falls Church Metro Kiss and Ride lot. We will stop at the Sheetz in Warrenton on our way to the trailhead, where you can buy made-to-order sandwiches for lunch. We will likely stop for a group dinner on the way back.

What to bring
Bring a couple liters of water, lunch, warm inner layers, a sturdy shell or outer layer, a hat and gloves, microspikes or boots with good traction, poles, and $20 for transportation, admission and trip fees.

Important to know

How to find us:We'll meet in the small Kiss & Ride lot, to your right as you exit the station.
