Hay Rock

8 miles, moderate terrain
No Carpool

The hike starts and ends in the Daleville Commuter Parking lot.

We will start walking from the parking lot on trail that used to be the AT and join the AT shortly for the rest of the hike to Hay Rock and back again. The first mile is over relatively flat terrain, followed by a mile uphill to the ridgeline. From there it's another 2 miles to the top. There are several good overlooks along the way of Carvin's Cove and the valleys, but the best one is Hay Rock. This overhanging chunk of sandstone provides shelter on one side and great views on the other for those willing to scramble to the top. Finally we will return to the Daleville Park & Ride taking care not to follow the AT when it turns left after crossing Tinker Creek.
