Apple Orchard Falls, Cornelius Creek, Guillotine hike
10 miles, strenuous terrain
35 miles from Daleville, $3.00 carpool fee
The hike begins at the Sunset Fields overlook, milepost 78.4 on the Blue Ridge Parkway, then we proceed down the Apple Orchard Falls Trail and come back up via the Cornelius Creek Trail and Appalachian Trail going (north) by Sunset Field (where we started) and through the Guillotine, stopping at the Blue Ridge Parkway at MP 76.5. Total about 10 miles. This way if people are really tired on the way back, they can return to Sunset Fields Overlook instead of doing the extra two miles to go through the Guillotine.
There is a short car shuttle of about 2 miles.
