Blues, Brews, and BBQ at the Pearisburg Farmers Market, and Angels Rest hike
This is a great chance to see the best of Pearisburg and hike up Angels Rest while you’re there!
The new Pearisburg Farmers Market features a different theme and activities each Saturday. June 13, there will be live music, a beer garden with Parkway Brewing Co, and barbecue. ATC and RATC will have a tent with lots of info and games. The trail club is also leading an opportunity for the community and any hikers passing through to lend a hand caring for the A.T.
Work trip participants will meet at the ATC tent at 9:30 am, then caravan over to the Pearis Cemetary parking lot on Old Rte 100. They will spend about 2 hours picking up trash, lopping, and cutting back brush on the section of Trail near the River that tends to get overgrown and accumulates trash from the highway. We will provide gloves, trash bags, loppers, snips and folding saws, and extra long sleeved shirts as there is poison ivy in the area. Participants will return to the Farmers Market afterward for a 10% discount coupon for lunch and a souvenir from ATC.
There is also a hike to Angels Rest starting at 2 pm. It’s a steep climb 2-mile but absolutely worth it for the view!
