My husband I are originally from Raleigh, NC and moved to Charlottesville, VA in the spring of 2016. I joined HiB not long after with my then 10 month old daughter, Alia. I became a Co-BA in early 2017 and took over the branch when the original BA moved. I am currently the Playroom Coordinator for Little Planets Playroom; a nature inspired, Waldorf playroom downtown. We tend to lead hikes during the afternoons and on weekends. We’re expecting a little boy in late March and I’m looking forward to getting back to some tougher carrier hikes!
Our favorite moderate to difficult hikes in the area are Crabtree Falls, Humpback Rocks, Mint Springs, and Blackrock Summit. When we want to take it a little easier we love the Riverview Park Loop, the Saunders-Monticello Trail, the Rockfish Valley Foundation Trails and Sugar Hollow.
