River & Trail Outfitters’ bus picks up passengers from the Shady Grove Metro Station at 12:30 p.m., arriving at the Shenendoah River in Millville, West Virginia, around 2 p.m. Then, they’ll take to the calm river waters, with the chance to tube, canoe, and kayak. At 5 p.m. the grill master prepares to cook up a dinner of grass-fed local beef burgers, hot dogs, and veggie wraps. (Guests are provided a soft drink or water and are welcome to bring their own beverages.)
The bus returns to the station around 8 p.m. All-day parking at the Metro station is available for a $5.10 fee.
