Hungry Mother State Park, Lake Loop Trail & Molly’s Knob Vista Trail.

This will be about a 7 to 8 mile hike that’s located in Hungry Mother State Park in Marion, VA. This is an overall moderate rated hike 98 miles/1hr 30 min drive from Salem, 75 miles/70 min drive from Christiansburg. There is a $4 per car kiosk fee at the park, so carpooling is a great option for those who care too. The trail going up to the top of the Vista is a bit strenuous, but short and well worth the hike featuring excellent long-range views to the south. The Vista Trail is a side trail and not mandatory to complete the loop we will be making. We’ll meet at the Exxon gas station off Exit 50, I81 south at 10 am. From Exxon to the trailhead is only a short 8 miles. 

Suggested carpool fee of $8.00.
