Hanging Rock State Park 8.5 miler (strenuous hike)

Join us Sunday January 12th for a lively jaunt through the Sauratown Mountains, the only mountain range contained in a single county. This strenuous hike will include a walk to the top of Hanging Rock with beautiful fall vistas. This 8.5 mile hike will include elevation gains and rocky uneven terrain. We'll hike up to the top of Hanging Rock and enjoy the vista. Next we'll take Wolf Rock and Magnolia Springs Trail to intersect with the Moores Wall Loop and return back to our starting location. Estimated hiking time is 3 hours, total time w/stops for views and snacks should be about 4 hrs. Adults only, no pets or children. Must be fit and able to hike a pretty good clip for several hours. Participation limited to 8. For more information and to register, contact Kim Ashley ([masked]) and Michael Byrne ([masked]).

All Sierra Club Outings participants must sign a standard liability waiver.

      Safari can’t open the file “1642317.gpx” because no available application can open it. What application did you use? Did you use a PC instead of a Mac?

      Google Earth should be able to open it.
