About the Event
$26 + park fee/pass. Harder rock scrambling hike: 9½ mi., 2500 ft. ascent/descent. Easier out-and-back hike: up to 10½ mi., up to 2500 ft. ascent/descent.
We’ll climb the famed peak via the classic circuit from Nethers on the Ridge Trail, Saddle Trail and Weakley Hollow Fire Road. An easier but optionally longer choice is an out-and-back hike on the Fire Road and Saddle Trail in which you can turn around at any point and avoid the rock scrambling segment.
