Cascades to Butt Mountain — 10.8 miles, strenuous

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 with a great view of the New River Valley. From there it will continue on along the ridge-top of Butt Mountain to the location of an old fire lookout tower.
