Fox Creek (Rt 603) to Elk Garden (Rt 600) AT Hike

16.8 miles, moderate terrain
71 miles from Roanoke, $7.00 carpool fee

Join us a long hike on one of the most scenic parts of the entire A.T. We will be hiking in the high country of the Mount Rogers Scenic Area. Much of this hike will be in open meadows at over 5,000 feet. The trail will pass near the wooded summit of Mount Rogers, at 5,729 feet, the highest point in Virginia. There are many semi-wild ponies in the open meadows along the trail. In addition, a profusion of rhododendron can also be seen. These should be in bloom in June. There will be about 2,000 feet of elevation gain on this hike.
