Pocahontas State Park

This is a hike for those that want to test their mettle. We will be hiking the FENDLEY STATION TRAIL loop which roughly follows the perimeter of the park. It may not be quite as flat as some of the previous Long Flat Hikes, but it’s definitely long, and any elevation change should be minimal.  The pace will be determined based on how hot it is or how much anyone struggles. Feel free to jump ahead but there will be sweepers and no one will be left behind.

Backpackers, feel free to bring your loaded packs!  For those that are interested we might just stay the night and use that gear that you lugged and enjoy the park. This is a great way to prepare for more rigorous hikes with no shortcut exits.  Great opportunity to test out and shake out and little consequence if overloaded since we’ll still be close to town.
