Hanging Rock State Park Hike
The ancient Sauratown Mountains, one of North
Carolina's eastern-most mountain ranges, are often called "the mountains
away from the mountains" since they are separated from the Blue Ridge
Mountains by quite a distance. However, these are mountains in their own right
- prominent quartzite peaks rise from 1700ft to 2500ft in elevation, a good
1000 - 1500 feet above the surrounding countryside. Located atop the Sauratown
sits a series of rock outcroppings with interesting names, including Moore's
Wall, Cook's Wall, Devil's Chimney, Wolf Rock, and, of course, Hanging Rock. Located not far from Winston-Salem and
Greensboro, the park makes an excellent choice for a day-trip.
This is a really fun hike with lots of technical and great views!
Hiking and Carpool Details will be sent via e-mail through the site at a later date. Please check to be sure that your Meetup Profile is set for you to receive e-mails from Organizers.
