Fullers Rock/Big Rocky Row - The Easy Way.
7.5 or 10 miles, moderate terrain
30 miles from Roanoke, $2 carpool fee
We will hike to the intersection with the AT and to Fullers Rock using
Little Rocky Row Run. This eliminates the steep uphill on the AT from the
footbridge. Hikers will then be given a choice on continuing up steeply north
on the AT to Big Rocky Row or descending the AT south down to the footbridge.
Those continuing on north will descend Saddle Gap trail down to Hercules Road.
A short car drop will eliminate any road walking. Great views along the trail
include Glasgow to the northwest, the James River below to the south and the
James Face Wilderness to the southeast.
