About the Event

$36. Long hike 10½ mi., 2200 ft. ascent. Moderate hike, 8½ mi., 1800 ft. ascent/descent.

Today’s visit to Signal Knob features two counter-clockwise circuits from scenic Elizabeth Furnace in George Washington National Forest. We’ll ascend the Signal Knob Trail (good views en route) to the ridgetop, where medium hikers veer off on Meneka Trail along the ridge and descend to the bus on the Tuscarora and Massanutten Trails. Long hikers continue to the Signal Knob overlook, and follow the medium hikers back. Hikers preferring a shorter option may do an out-and-back of any distance.
