Final Rock Castle Gorge Hike

September 22nd is the final guided hike through Rock Castle Gorge. This will be your final opportunity to join a ranger from the Blue Ridge Parkway as they lead a guided five-mile hike through Rock Castle Gorge and highlight the history of the Rock Castle community that existed in this area from the late 1700s through the 1930s.

Participants will meet at the Rocky Knob Cabins off of Woodberry Road (near Milepost 174). Hikers are asked to wear good hiking boots, be prepared for stream crossings, and bring water and lunch. The hike will end at the lower end of Rock Castle Gorge Trail at the CCC Camp Road off of VA Route 8. Shuttle back to cars will be available for drivers, or you may set up your own shuttle ahead of time.

Times: 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM

Call ahead at 540-745-9662 for more information.
