Sharp and Flat Top Fall Hike

8.0 miles; Moderate-Strenuous $3.25 carpool fee; 27 miles from Roanoke

The leaves should be peaking and the views this time of year at the Peaks are always beautiful!

Flat Top: Located at the very scenic Peaks of Otter along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Botetourt County. At one point a side trail descends a short distance to an unusual formation known as Cross Rock. At the summit of Flat Top nice views may be obtained by easy scrambles onto projecting rocks. Sharp Top: We will be hiking to the top of Sharp Top, at the Peaks of Otter on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Bedford County. The first half of hike is a steep ascent with many stone steps. There is a spectacular 360-degree view from the summit.

*Please note- For the folks who get the blazer this hike was scheduled for October 25th but I realized I had a conflicting schedule therefore I am moving to the 26th. There will also be a car shuttle involved.
