Monroe Trail Day

May 1 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Monroe Trails Day officially kicks off May 1st with an organized hike launching from the Hanging Rock parking lot at 1 PM. There will be two hike options, one is a two-hour hike starting and ending at the parking area. This will be the perfect wildflower walk and birding outing. The other is an approximately four-hour hike following the Allegheny Trail to the Salt Sulphur Turnpike with a shuttle return upon the conclusion. Both hike options will pass Hanging Rock and will have guides experienced to share their knowledge about flora and fauna. Pack a lunch or pick up some snacks on-site from event sponsors Friends of Monroe and the Gap Mills Ruritan Club. Here is the perfect chance to experience a group hike, experience 360-degree mountain top views, and see what lies beyond Hanging Rock. For more information contact Allison at 304-772-3003.
