Catawba Valley Trail, North Mountain & back
6 miles, moderate terrain
12 miles from Roanoke, $1.00 carpool fee,
The Catawba Valley trailhead is opposite the Andy Layne
trailhead parking on VA-779.
We will be hiking up the Catawba Valley Trail to the summit
of North Mountain and back. There are limited views from the summit of the
Catawba Valley and Craig County.
This was a terrible piece of the AT during the period that
the AT was moved off McAfee Knob, but has been constructed into the beautiful
trail of today by the Mid-Week Crew.
