Autumn Days Are Here Again!
NoVAGO Fall CITO at Burke Lake Park
Join the Northern Virginia Geocaching Association (NoVAGO) and other area geocachers for a Fall CITO at Burke Lake Park. A popular place for hiking and families with some of the best trails around including a scenic 4.78-mile fitness/biking/hiking trail which loops around the 218-acre lake. It is also home to one of Virginia’s oldest active geocaches! This is an excellent opportunity to give back to Mother Earth by picking up trash and helping with trail maintenance at this great Virginia park all while earning the exclusive CITO 2017 souvenir.
