Hay Rock Hike

8 miles, Moderately Strenuous

No carpool fee, in Roanoke

Located in Botetourt County, north of Roanoke. Except for a short feeder trail, the route follows the Appalachian Trail to Hay Rock and back again. There are several good overlooks along the way, but the best one is Hay Rock. This overhanging chunk of sandstone provides shelter on one side and great views on the other -for those willing to scramble to the top.
