St. Mary’s Wilderness (C2)

  • 22 May 2024

Moderately to Strenuous Shuttle Hike of 7 miles with 325 ft of elevation gain and 1750 ft of elevation loss.  We will meet at St Mary's Trail Parking Area. Then after a 30 minute shuttle we will start our hike at the Mine Bank Creek Trailhead on the Blue Ridge Parkway. During our hike we will visit the old mining area and St Mary Falls. Be sure to bring water, lunch-snacks, hiking boots,and  dress for the weather.. All the stream crossings now have stepping stones but we might encounter a wet crossing or you might want to take a dip in the river so “Be Prepared”.

And as a service project, I plan to spend  30 minutes  cutting back laurel growth on a Short Section in Need with anyone who would like to help. Everyone else can continue on to Lunch and the Falls Hike is limited  to 10 with no Dogs . To register contact Howard Davis at   hsdhiker@gmail.com
