This hike is rescheduled from Saturday, May 11.
Signal Knob is one the most popular hikes in the Elizabeth Furnace Recreation Area. This is a hard 10.5 mile hike which will take about 5.5 hours total (including a 30min lunch break). There are some strenuous ascents, steep descents, and lots of rocks, so be prepared. You should have some previous experience hiking. Sturdy boots are a must to avoid twisted ankles. You can find trail maps, hiker reviews, pictures, and a ton of other helpful info here: http://www.hikingupward.com/GWNF/SignalKnob/.
Leashes are not required in the GWNF, so the dogs can be off leash most of the time. If your dog is off leash, he/she must be under voice control at all times. You also must carry a leash with you. This is a popular hike and we will run into other people/dogs and there may be a situation when they need to be on leash. Please review our Off Leash Policy before the hike.
There are not a lot of streams on this hike, so please bring enough water for both you and your dog.
I will cancel the event if the forecast calls for rain/thunderstorms or excessive heat. I will update the hike by noon Friday if I decide to cancel it.
Looking forward to the hike!
