Signal Knob and Meneka Peak

Rating: A

A 10 mile circuit hike with about 2,100 feet elevation change on Massanutten Mountain. We will climb over Meneka Peak, allowing continuous views of East Massanutten and the Blue Ridge Mountains to Signal Knob, a Civil War observation point, with outstanding views of the valleys below.

 


Hike rating is based on both the linear distance and elevation change with 400 feet of climbing considered equivalent to 1 mile linear distance. The ratings are:  A=Difficult (greater than 13 miles),  B=Moderately Difficult (10-13 miles), C=Moderate (7-10 miles), D=Easy (less than 7 miles)

      Villo - at the top under the "Centreville Commuter Lot" is a link to a map. You can use that to get directions from your location. Hope that helps.

    I am a beginning hiker with some experience in uphill hiking, but I am in good physical shape. Is this a more advanced hike? I am new to the group so I wanted to ask. I am very excited to start hiking with you!
