Longdale North Mountain Trail
11.2 miles, moderate terrain
42 miles from Roanoke $4.00 carpool
This is an out-and-back hike. The first two miles are an old forest service road track
with gentle terrain. The trail then follows a stream for 1 mile up the hollow
followed by 1/2 mile of long switchbacks to get to the top of the ridge. After
that it is relatively flat until we get to our destination which are
outcroppings with excellent valley views.
