Mountains to Sea Trail Birthday Hike
September 7, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pmFREE
To celebrate the trail’s 42nd birthday, the Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail is inviting hikers of all skill levels to join one of 33 group hikes in 27 trail towns across the state.
Information about our local hike:
This five mile hike is mostly forested along the Blue Ridge escarpment. From the Thunderhill Overlook hikers will proceed north to Goshen Creek. Mostly downhill , this hike begins on the edge of forever with 100 mile views and crosses several forested areas with interesting rock formations. It then descends into field and forest hiking. There will be a short roadside walk in the mid section and then entering the forest hikers will follow along a classic mountain stream. Bridges span all water crossings and the cool damp creekside forest is quite inspiring.
Meet Thunderhill Overlook at 8:30 and cars will be shuttled to the completion point at Goshen Creek. Hikers will return to Thunderhill and will begin the hike there at 9:00 am.
