Ribble Trail to Kimberling Creek (VA-606) Hike #13, plus Dismal Falls

7.8 miles, moderate terrain
71 miles from Roanoke, $7.00 carpool fee

Located in Giles County, this hike follows Dismal Creek for several miles. Much of the trail is lined with rhododendron.  At 3.9 miles, blue-blazed trail on right goes 0.3 miles to Dismal Falls. We will be hiking down and around Dismal Falls and back up to the AT. This part of the creek is very scenic. The hike ends at VA-606 and Kimberling Creek. The A.T. goes over the creek on a footbridge.
