Mt. Rogers Hike & Bike

Event Date: 
Sat, May 25 (All day) to Mon, May 27 (All day)

 

Join us for a weekend of hiking to Rhododendron Gap and cycling on the VA Creeper Trail. We have Group Walk-In tent site # 2 reserved for Saturday and Sunday nights, May 25 & 26.
 
We can accommodate up to 24 tent campers and 4 vehicles. Other vehicles must park at the lake parking lot.
 
This year we will return to Rhododendron Gap, but from a different trail. The trail from Massie Gap in Grayson Highlands State Park to Rhododendron Gap and back. The hike will be on Sunday and is an 11 mile hike. Other excellent shorter hikes are available in Grayson Highlands for those not up to an 11 mile hike…those opting for shorter hikes will be on their own.
 
We will have warm-up hike options and cycling options on Saturday and Monday on the VA Creeper Trail. Our warm up is the Ice Cream Social walk on the Creeper Trail to Taylor Valley & back—4 miles.
 
Cyclists must provide their own bikes, be in reasonable shape, and must wear a helmet. Hikers should also be in reasonable shape, and wear appropriate footwear/clothing, carry water and food for a lunch break on the trail.
