Apple Orchard Mtn to Flat Top/Falling Water Cascades

9.5 miles, moderate terrain
33 miles from Roanoke, $3.00 carpool fee

This hike will begin where the AT crosses the Blue Ridge Parkway north of Apple Orchard Mountain. It will take in 5 miles of the AT to the Cornelius Creek Shelter. To see how the balance of this hike will be accomplished without using the Blue Ridge Parkway, you need to come along. The hike will take in the Guillotine (pack an extra head just in case), the summit of Apple Orchard Mountain, Black Rock Overlook, and other great views along with a trip to Falling Water Cascades near the end.
