6.0 miles, strenuous terrain
56 miles from Roanoke, $5.50 carpool fee
The hike is located in Rockbridge County on the west side og Goshen Pass.
The trailhead is in the Goshen Pass area
near Lexington. There is a high scenic ridge with cliffs and very unusual rock
formations. An old trail description, borrowing words from Dante's Inferno,
warns, Abandon all hope, ye who enter here, . This is something of an
exaggeration. However parts of the trail are very steep and there are stream
crossings if a loop hike is attempted.
