Smith Mtn Lake State Park / Turtle Island

Join us as we hike in beautiful Smith Mountain Lake State Park! We will meet near the swimming beach parking, hike the Striper Trail to Turtle Island, then the Buck Run and Walton Creek Trails back to our cars. This is an easy to moderate hike coming in at 7.5-8.0 miles.

Roanoke area hikers meet at the Vinton Kroger at 8:00 AM near the Dunkin Donuts. If anyone lives closer to the lake, meet at the state park in the swimming beach parking at 9:00 AM. Carpool fee is $3.00, and the parking fee at the state park is $7.00 per car.
