Stone Mountain State Park – Roaring Gap, NC
We will be meeting at the Kangaroo Express gas station off Exit #8 on I77S in Fancy Gap, VA. This is 85 miles from Salem or 60 miles from Christiansburg. Once together, from this gas station we will drive 40 more miles to the park. We’ll be hiking 3 trails totaling around 10 miles. This hike should be considered strenuous so please bring plenty of snacks and water appropriate for such a hike. The views are outstanding and this park also hosts a very cool little area where the old Hutchinson homeplace can be viewed, including signage explaining all the neat info..
The massive granite dome at Stone Mountain State Park keeps watch on park visitors enjoying nearly every type of outdoor activity – camping, hiking, climbing, fishing, picnicking, horseback riding and more. There are more than 18 miles of trails, matched by more than 20 miles of designated trout waters in this park that spreads below the Blue Ridge Parkway.
