Greet the arrival of our suddenly crisp, winter weather with a hike. Volunteers will lead hikers on the Purple Heart Trail in Jefferson Memorial Forest. The trail is 2.1 miles long and rated as moderate in difficulty, which means anyone with the ability to walk up hills with uneven terrain should be fine. The trail follows a steep ridge line with vistas that organizers say are “especially nice in winter when leaves are absent.” Just meet up in the large parking lot by the Tom Wallace Recreation Area to get started.
