Round Hill/Hillsboro Appalachian Trail Festival
In cooperation with the Town of Round Hill and the Round Hill Appalachian Trail committee, the Town of Hillsboro presents the Appalachian Trail Festival in The Gap on the grounds of the Old Stone School. The all-day event features:
• Live bluegrass music on The Gap Stage
• Dozens of vendors featuring hiking and outdoor gear
• Speakers and demonstrations
• Kid’s activities
• Food and local beers and wines
Now in its third year, the festival is a terrific gathering of experienced hikers, those who want to know more about hiking, vendors showcasing the best in new gear and trail organizations who work so hard to protect and maintain the 2,100-mile footpath from Georgia to Maine. This will be my third year taking part in the festival, which has become an annual highlight. I’ll be doing a trail cooking demonstration and hosting a booth where you can “talk trail” and/or purchase my books about the Appalachian Trail and America’s public lands. I look forward to seeing you there.
