Rock Castle Gorge Hikes

This summer join rangers from the Blue Ridge Parkway as they will again be leading guided hikes through Rock Castle Gorge. The five mile hikes will 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.

The dates for this series are: 7/21/12, 8/4/12, and 9/22/12

Times: 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM

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