Petites Gap/Hunting Creek Trail Loop

10.2 miles, moderate terrain
42 miles from Roanoke, $4.00 carpool fee

This hike will start at Petites Gap on the AT and head south to its junction with the Hunting Creek Trail. We will follow the Hunting Creek Trail down to Forest Road 45 (doubles as Glenwood Horse Trail) and walk the road north to where the Glenwood Horse Trail veers off the road. We will continue on the Horse Trail until it reaches Petites Gap. The hike will pass by the Thunder Ridge Overlook with nice views of Arnolds Valley and mountains to the west and north. The Hunting Creek Trail follows the beautiful Hunting Creek during the later part of that trail and offers some cascading falls along the way.
