Description

This is a gravel road that takes you up to Rocky Face Ridge. It's a 2-mile climb on somewhat eroded road. Once you're at the top, you have a 360-degree view of the surrounding mountains. To the east, you see Fort Mountain. To the south, you see Dug Gap Mountain and Hurricane Mountain. To the west, there is Lookout Mountain.

If you continue on this trail, you'll enter a very rocky section of trail that goes through civil war fortifications or breastworks.

Awesome to hike up here in the evening and watch the sunset!

Nice hike with some challenging hills. Parking is a little hard to find. Take Crow Valley and look for the sign for a "Historical Marker". Turn left on the gravel road and go to the end. Trail is on the right. It is an old gravel road with some erosion, but not difficult to traverse. At the top, definitely go beyond the cell tower to the very top. For the last 1/4 mile the road is grassy and comes to a peak with a phenomenal view in all directions! Mar 24, 2018
