This is the classic section of this year's Trek, running in the same style as previous years. For the most part we’ll stay in small-town bed & breakfasts or historic hotels and inns, and eat at local restaurants or have meals catered courtesy of our inn hosts.  Luggage support will be provided to each night’s lodging.  All you have to do is eat and ride!  What a deal!  Many of our core group returns year after year to do the Trek, and some have been on all seven previous Treks.  C’mon along!  I bet you’ll be hooked too!


Our 2006 Yockatomac Trek is now full. It is possible that a second section with a similar itinerary may be organized; consult this year's overview from time to time to see what's available.  Lodging arrangements and other logistics are complete and we’re excited about another unique adventure taking shape.  We're looking forward to the “TheOCTrek – Our Eighth Great Passage.”


We will use email for most communication about the trip.  Join our email list to receive more information as it becomes available and be notified of future postings by sending an email to: .
