Sunset Hike to Rice Field Overlook

We will meet on the street end of the parking lot of the Food Lion on North Main in Blacksburg at 6 pm. Roanoke folks can arrange their own carpool, leaving from that area at a little after 5 and meeting at the Food Lion. We’ll proceed to the trailhead on Pocahontas Rd. in Pearisburg. The hike is 2.6 miles each way, 5.2 total, and climbs Peters Mountain at a mostly gentle to moderate angle. Total climb is 1,200 feet. Bring water, a flashlight and an extra layer; it can be breezy at the top. Questions? Message me or call 540-239-2583. Carpool fees: $2.00 from Food Lion, $5.00 from Roanoke.
