Hay Rock Hike (shuttle departs from Troutville Trail Days)
Hike to Hay Rock for great views looking into Carvins Cove! This is a moderately strenuous 8 mile round trip hike, so bring a lunch and plenty of water as well as rain gear and other day hike essentials.
Brendle Wolfe is leading this hike, and is happy to be flexible if participants would prefer a shorter hike. The group can discuss on Saturday morning if they want to turn back after the first good views from Tinker Ridge, which is about 2 miles from the trailhead in Daleville.
This hike is being offered as part of Troutville Trail Days, so participants will meet up at the Troutville Town Park and catch a shuttle to the trailhead and back. Plan to stick around and enjoy the festivities after the hike! Visit troutvilletraildays.com for more info.
Merrell, Salewa, and Hoka One One will have demo shoes at the Town Park which you can take out for a test run.
