AT Hike – Sunset Fields to Thunder Ridge Overlook

*Please keep your RSVP current, update them as needed if your plans change*

This will be an 8 mile hike with 1500ft elevation gain and should be considered as Moderate to Strenuous, $1.00 carpool fee. This hike will be on the A.T. from the Sunset Fields overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway to the Thunder Ridge Overlook on the BRPW, then back to Sunset Fields. We’ll be exploring wonderful views from Thunder Ridge Overlook and Apple Orchard Mountain, which has a large grassy bald at its summit. This route is also known for the Guillotine, a rock formation, where the trail passes under a suspended rock. There is also a beautiful series of over 100 rock steps installed by the Natural Bridge Appalachian Trail Club along the trail immediately before the Guillotine. This will be a loop hike. We will meet at the Peaks of Otter Visitors Center at 10 am, then drive the 8 miles to Sunset Fields by way of the Blue Ridge Parkway.
