During operating hours, the Memorial Foundation of the Germanna Colonies in Virginia, Inc., allows visitors to enjoy hiking trails in the Siegen Forest behind the Germanna Visitor Center. The Hitt/Orange Trail is accessed via a path that starts just behind the Cloister at the Germanna Foundation Visitor Center. It is a short (0.58 mile) loop trail. The first section is relatively flat until it passes the Urquhart Cemetery side trail. After the trail turns northwest, this trail intersects with the River/Red trail. If you wish, you may turn left to follow the River/Red trail. Please note that the River/Red trail is a one-way trail so you will have to walk in and then turn around to get back to the Visitor Center. If you follow the orange blazes, you come to the access road which will lead back to the Visitor Center and parking.
