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.

    Seen this too late, I would have loved to go on this one.....

    Hey all, we're just 2 weeks away from the hike. Please, please be sure to drop off of the "yes" list if you are NOT planning to go. We have several waiting to get on so be very considerate towards them. Also, I will soon e-mail hike details and carpool location! You'll need to be SURE that you are set up on your Meetup profile so that you can receive e-mail from group leader (me) as well as other members. Otherwise you won't know where to meet us. Note! I do NOT post hike details, carpool locations nor any specific details of the hike on the Meetup page out of privacy concerns. Please check your settings so that I am not getting last minute posts that you don't know the carpool location. I will send it to everyone so it is your responsibility to be sure that you can receive the e-mail! OK, I will stop the rant now :))))) Later.......

    I have an issue with my heel right now so I would need to see how it is by then if I get on the list. I might need to do a less strenuos or shorter hike anyway. Didn't know if anyone on the waitlist was interested.

    October 9, 2013

    • Doreen

      Hope you recover in time! With injuries and issues its best to take it easy and don't push it.

      October 10, 2013

  • Doreen

    Lots of questions here on attendee limits and what chance to get onto the hike from the waitlist . If history repeats itself there will be several spots to open up closer to the hike date. This has been the case for all of my hikes so far, across the board. I limit my hikes since the parks prefer us to do that. Saves on trail errosion. Also, because my hikes are strenuous and we need to maintain a good pace, 2.5mph if possible, less people to crack a whip over! ;) You might want to hang in there on the waitlist and might get on the hike but not if you drop iff.....just sayin.......:)

    October 9, 2013

  • Chris

    I'm on the waitlist right now but was wondering if the other "waitlisters" want to get together somewhere closer to the Charlotte area to hike if we don't get on this trip. Also, I live in Fort Mill and go to the Anne Springs Greenway to hike. They have trails of different lengths (up to 17 miles). If anyone is ever interested in going with me, let me know.

  • Dawn C.

    Are there any open spots or still just waiting list?

    October 7, 2013

    • Doreen

      There are some hike leaders who don't have a limit on attendees however I prefer more strenuous hikes with fewer people so that we can stay together and keep up a good pace. I like averaging 2.5 mph depending on the elevation changes. If you want a guarantee on getting into a hike you might try Charlotte Piedmont Hiking group on Meetup.com. It's a great group and they don't ever limit the number. Having said that you can get on my wait list and see if you might Nab a spot closer to the hike date. Chances are pretty good that several will drop. Just happens that way most of the time as people change their minds last minute. Good luck :)

      I think I made the list. :) I was just curious how all that worked. Makes perfect sense! Thanks!

      October 8, 2013

  • Kathy M.

    new to group, why are this limited to certain # of people?

    October 8, 2013

  • Doreen

    Hey All,

    I know that many of you were recently added to the hike list and so you have not received the hike details that I emailed to the "yes" list a few days ago. You will need this info as I do not post specific hike details. If you have not received the hike details via e-mail you will need to let me know so that I can send it to you. Second, I need to know who is meeting me at the carpool and who is meeting at the trailhead.

    Thanks,
    Doreen
