A few years ago, I hid a set of keys motorcycle keys in my garage. They're still hidden away, although I sold that bike four years ago. Don't be offended if I say that I've unsure if I've heard of the Tidewater Appalachian Trail Club (TATC). I might have forgotten.
But, the TATC newsletter is terrific. It's written by people I'd love to spend time with and is all about their work on the Appalachian Trail.
The Tidewater Appalachian Trail Club is an energetic group that maintains a 10+ mile section of the Appalachian Trail. The club is centered in Norfolk, VA, with 500+ dedicated members.
TATC maintains 23 miles of other trails in the Blue Ridge Mountains, including: the White Rocks Falls Trail along the Blue Ridge Parkway; the Mau-Har Trail off of the Appalachian Trail; and, all the trails in the St. Mary' Wilderness. In the Tidewater area, the club maintains trails in First Landing State Park, False Cape State Park, New Quarter Park, and Sandy Bottom Nature Park.
The TATC will help you enjoy backpacking, day hiking, canoeing, kayaking, biking, car camping, whitewater rafting, skiing, rock climbing, rappelling and eating with friendly outdoorsy folks!
Meet new friends at the TATC monthly meetings each second Wednesday in Norfolk.
