Sweet Hike (Shuttle Departs Troutville Trail Days)
A beautiful hike with a sweet reward at the end!
This gentle, family-friendly hike follows the A.T. southbound for about 2.5 miles from Route 11 near the Troutville Town Park to highway 220 in Daleville. Once you reach Daleville, the group will carefully cross the road and walk another 0.4 miles along the road shoulder to My Happy Place Frozen Treats in Botetourt Commons.
Hike participants will get a coupon for $2 off a frozen treat on arrival! As everyone enjoys their treats, we’ll call for the shuttle to pick us up and take us back to Troutville Town Park. Plan to stick around and enjoy the festivities after the hike. Visit troutvilletraildays.com for more info.
Plan to arrive early – Merrell, Salewa, and Hoka One One will have demo shoes at the Town Park which you can take out for a test run.
Please bring water, snacks, sun protection (hat and/or sunscreen), a rain coat or poncho, hiking shoes and any other essentials you typically bring on a day hike. The hike leaders will have first aid kits and maps.
