Details

There are numerous cliffs, and plenty of amazing views along the Rock Jock Trail. There are a few sections on this trail that have a few stands of Princess Trees and/or Chinese Silvergrass. Two invasive plants that threaten to spread and choke out the native plants and wildlife. We'll carry tools to remove these, as we enjoy the all the beauty that this trail has to offer. Tools and training will be provided. Please come prepared for rain, wear sturdy hiking boots, with 2 -3 liters of water and snacks and lunch for yourself. This trail is close to 4 miles long with all the side trails added. We'll have a car parked at each end so to not need to hike back. In areas of this trail there is little shade, so sunblock and a sun hat are recommended. Please RSVP to let me know if you are coming, and so that I can let you know if the trip is canceled or not due to the weather or for whatever reason. Looking forward to showing you my favorite trail in Linville!
