Catawba Mountain (Rt. 311) to Daleville (Rt. 220) 113-Mile Hikes #3 & #4
19.2 miles; VERY Strenuous
$2.00 carpool fee; 6 miles from Roanoke
Starts from the 311 parking lot on Catawba Mountain – only 15 minutes from Roanoke. Certainly one of our most challenging hikes, it is recommended only for those in excellent physical condition. Almost 20 miles of the Appalachian Trail leads over varied terrain with several steep climbs and tricky footing in places. Highlights include McAfee Knob, Tinker Cliffs and Hay Rock. There are also numerous unnamed overlooks providing nice views of both the Catawba Valley and Carvins Cove
we will meet at the dalevill park ‘n ride at 7:30 and carpool to rt. 311 where the hike will begin.
