Disclaimer #1 - This hike is rated as a strenuous hike and all hikers are going to start on the wait list. Since this hike is rated as a strenuous hike, those hikers, who have not hiked with me, will need to answer the following questions before I will allow them on the hike.

1. How often do you hike?
2. What strenuous hikes have you completed?
3. When and what was the last strenuous hike that you completed?

The answers to the above questions need to be emailed to me at [masked] or via Meetup messages within one week of the RSVP. Failure to answer these questions within one week will move the hikers from the wait list to NOT GOING.

Hike Highlights - Appalachian Trail, Hay Rock, Carvin Cove, Multiple viewpoints from the Appalachian Trail

Hike Details - This is going to be an out and back hike down by the Virginia Triple Crown. We are going to form carpools at the Fontaine Research Park shortly before 8:00 AM. We are going to leave promptly at 8:00 AM and drive down to the trailhead on Rt. 220 just off of I 81. We are going to start the hike by hiking the Appalachian Trail southbound 4 miles to Hay Rock. This stretch of Appalachian Trail does have multiple rock outcroppings and vistas before we reach our turn around point, lunch spot, and the best view of the surrounding mountains and Roanoke reservoir. After eating lunch and taking a whole lot of picture, we will retrace our steps back to our cars. Please make sure to review the hike link below before signing up for this hike.
