Let's go for a hike! This MODERATE hike will be about 6.5 miles long, out and back style. It will begin on the Appalachian Trail, initially passing through several flat farm fields and then up the mountain into the woods with about 650 feet of elevation gain. We will then turn onto the White Rocks trail which involves hiking through interesting large rock formations and optional rock scrambling on top of the ridge.
