Crane Trail Hike


Co-led by Grant Colip (from the United States Geological Survey) and CRPA Member Dave Peters (10:30 a.m. onward). There are limited opportunities to hike the Rough Mountain Wilderness Area in Bath County due to the lack of established trails and access. Join us for a hike of the western portion of the Crane trail. This will be an up and back walk with time on top to discuss future hikes. The ascent will take about 1 1/2 hours. Included in this event will be some stops along Rt 42 (the Cowpasture River Highway) for observation of geology of the river valley and karst development. Be sure to bring a sack lunch. More details provided upon your RSVP. (Limit of 12 people; cost is $10 per person.)
