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.
The views from the fun scramble along the mile-long summit ridge of exposed rock make Old Rag nearly everyone’s favorite mountain in these parts. 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 longer choice: an out-and-back hike on the Fire Rd and Saddle Trail in which you can turn around at any point and avoid the rock scrambling.
