Sunday, Appalachian Trail from Punchbowl to Fullers Rocks, then Rocky Row Trail to James River, Hike Leader Jeff Monroe, 10 miles, elevation ranges from 1500 to 2500 feet, moderate.
No hunting in Virginia on Sundays on public lands!
Join hikers from the PATC-Charlottesville Chapter and check out a beautiful section of the Appalachian Trail, ascending from the Blue Ridge Parkway at MP 51.7 (elevation 2150 feet) to Bluff Mountain (elevation 3400 feet) over the first 2 miles of the hike, then slowly descending to 1200 feet via the A.T. and the Rocky Row Trail. Views from Fullers Rocks are doubtless among the top dozen A.T. views in Virginia. Long car shuttle or key swap required.
Please sign up only if you intend to hike with us. Roanoke hikers will meet Charlottesville group at a trailhead. Meeting details will be communicated to those signed up 3-5 days in advance of the hike date.
