Terrapin Mt – Reeds Creek Loop

9 miles; Strenuous; 30 miles from Roanoke; $2 Car Pool fee.

Terrapin Mountain is near Big Island in Bedford County. The trail gets little traffic as is is not accessible from the BRP. The hike starts off of Terrapin Mt Rd. The first 3.5 miles is a steep ascent up to the summit. We will pass over three false summits before the peak with some great views. Dropping slightly down, we will reach Camping Gap and pick up Reeds Creek Trail. The trail follows the creek down with cascading water and pools before intersecting the Terrapin Mt Trail once again.
