Join the Friends as we explore a new trail in the park! This moderate two-mile round trip hike will lead the Friends to the top of Eagle Rock and down part of the new Weed Patch Mountain Trail through a large rock tunnel at the base of Eagle Rock. On this hike you can see excellent views of the North Face of Rumbling Bald Mountain as well as parts of Rumbling Bald Resort. Meet Ranger Scheip at the Ticket Plaza in the Chimney Rock Attraction at 10 a.m.
Please wear appropriate shoes and clothing for tough mountain terrain and variable mountain weather. Bring plenty of water, snacks, & a lunch. Programs are scheduled but ending time may vary based on the abilities of the group.
