Cascades to Butt Mountain 10.8 miles. $5.50 carpool fee from Roanoke

Located in Giles County near Pembroke, the hike will first go along Little Stony Creek, to the Cascades – an impressive waterfall.  It will then go up the Nature Conservancy Trail to Barney’s Wall, a cliff that features a 700 foot drop.  There is a great view of the New River Valley from Barney’s Wall.  From there it will continue on along the ridge top of Butt Mountain to the location of an old fire lookout tower.  Please bring plenty of water for this warm summer day and healthy snacks.
