The A.T. Community of Pearisburg invites you to celebrate Family Hiking Day with a guided hike on the Appalachian Trail to Rice Field on the crest of Peters Mountain.
This hike is 5 miles round trip, featuring 1,200 feet of elevation gain over moderate terrain. The excursion will take 5-6 hours, and hikers should bring their own lunches and water. We will go at a “stop and look” pace and spend some time enjoying views from the mountaintop meadow and having lunch at the shelter.
Hikers of all ages are welcome, but this hike is most appropriate for hikers at least 5 years old. We will meet in Pearisburg at 10 a.m. to carpool to the trailhead — RSVP for complete details.
RSVP is required. Contact Kathryn at firstname.lastname@example.org or 540.904.4393 to RSVP today.
