By July 30, 2017 No Comments

Join us for our next free hike up Mt. Verstovia!  Meet our volunteers at the Verstovia Trailhead on Sawmill Creek Rd. on Saturday, Aug 5 at 9:00AM.

This is a difficult five mile, six hour, round-trip hike through a series of switchbacks.  There are spectacular views from the top.  Elevation gain is 2550 ft to Picnic Rock.  Expect numerous rocky sections, log steps, and tree roots.  The trail will be slippery and muddy if wet. Read more about the trail here.

Hiking poles are strongly recommended and we have a few available to borrow.  We also recommend bringing water, lunch, appropriate clothing, and a camera.  Hike leaders will carry first aid supplies & VHF radios. Youth under 18 must be accompanied by an adult in order to participate in this hike.
