SNP - Brown's Gap Parking Area

This Blue Blaze hike will start at Browns Gap and follow several trails for 11 miles and an elevation change of +/- 2500 feet.  We will hike the ridge on Rocky Top Trail (singing is optional).  We will also hike Big Run Portal Trail which will include some river crossings (prepared hikers will bring water shoes; unprepared hikers will have wet feet and sore toes).  I have never done this hike but it looks like a lot of elevation so be ready to climb.  Come and explore with me.  Since there are several trails we traverse this would be a good opportunity to test your map reading skills.

The return time is approximate.  If you have plans that require you to be back in Richmond at a specific time, please communicate this prior to carpooling with someone, or consider choosing a different hike. 

Optional stop for dinner on the way back if there is interest.
