Fuller Rocks, Big Rocky Row
10.23 miles, moderate terrain
39 miles from Roanoke, $3.00 carpool fee
The hike begins alongside beautiful Rocky Row Run.
Then, after crossing Hercules Road, the unrelenting climb begins: 2800 vertical feet in 3 miles
This hike will start on the AT crossing on Hercules Road.
The hike goes through an old slate mine and follows an old roadway
that offers very good views. The trail connects with the AT and then we would
hike south back toward the James River. The trail will cross Rocky
Row and Fullers Rocks, both of which have magnificent views of the James River
and the surrounding mountains. The trail will descend back to Hercules
Road passing an AT shelter along the way.
