REVISED: Ranger has temporarily Closed the new Whitehouse Cliffs Trail. Will instead explore Flint Creek Battle Site with option to wander over to White Oak Flats.
Rating: Medium 3-mile in-and-out hike with strenuous climb to reach top
In Rocky Fork State Park. We’ll be a bit after fall color but a leaf-crunching hike winding up a small peak to an overlook. A group of regional maintainers have been working on this trail, so we’ll see how improved the path is with their efforts.
Let’s leave from Colonial Heights (now east side of Ingles parking area) at 8am, swing by Johnson City at 8:30am, and meet at the small Rocky Fork parking area by 9am. We’ll take a slow pace to enjoy the cascading stream along the main gravel roadway, then proceed on forest road with a final climb up the ridge to the peak area. This short hike will have us back to the vehicles before lunch – unless we decide to explore more of the park. Could grab lunch at group choice.
Sturdy footwear and hiking poles are recommended. Pack water to stay hydrated. For further information and for headcount and carpooling, please call/e-mail the hike leader.
