Cascades Falls/Barney’s Wall

A modearte hike of rt 8.5 miles. We will meet in the parking lot of the trail head at 08:30. Parking fee of $2 at the entrance. We will hike to the lower falls on the lower trail, then on to the upper falls and Barney’s wall through the Nature conservancy and return via the upper trail. Even though it isn’t allowed, last time I hiked this, there were hunters in the nature conservancy, so bright colored clothing recommended. The pace will be leisurely and we will take the opportunities to enjoy and photograph each location. Expect mud this time of year, especially along the trail to the upper falls. Roanoke hikers can meet at orange market at 7:30. A suggested ride share fee of $3 from Roanoke.
