Guided Hikes of Rock Castle Gorge

Every other Saturday between now and September 17th, rangers from the Blue Ridge Parkway will be leading guided hikes in Rock Castle Gorge. The five mile hikes will highlight the history of the Rock Castle community.

Participants will meet at the Rocky Knob Cabins at 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.

The dates for this series are: 7/9/11, 7/23/11, 8/6/11, 8/20/11, 9/3/11, 9/17/11

Times: 9:30 AM to 2:00 PM
