Patterson & Price Mountains
10 miles, Challenging terrain
19 mile drive, short shuttle, $2.00 carpool fee
The hike will start
on the Patterson Mountain Trail with a steep ascent followed by a few saw
teeth. It will then take a right down the Tucker trail to Patterson Creek Road
where we will pick up the Kelly trail up to the Price Mountain Trail, followed
by a right turn back to where it crosses VA-606. This will be about 10
miles of poorly marked rugged trail - what an adventure!
We did this hike
at this time in 2010 and scaled a few snow drifts on the Price Mountain Ridge.
