Spy Rock

This is a strenuous 10.5 mile hike to two beautiful vistas on the Appalachian Trail: Spy Rock and the Priest. The hike will take about 6 hours and will require shuttling. We will need to bring enough cars to leave one or more at the end point and be able to shuttle people to the beginning.

We will leave cars at the Route 56/Appalachian Trail intersection, and then take remaining cars and all hikers to the Fish Hatchery Parking Lot. Hike up “Spy Rock Road” to the Appalachian Trail, then north to Spy Rock. After climbing Spy Rock, continue north on the Appalachian Trail to the Priest Mountain. Hike down the Priest to the parking area at the Route 56 Appalachian Trail crossing.

Optional stop for dinner on the way home.
