Description: Let’s enjoy a beautiful Saturday hike along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Please join me for a scenic 10-mile out-and-back hike near Glendale Springs. We'll start at the Jumpinoff Rock parking area, Milepost 260.3 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. From the parking lot, we’ll hike on a rooty path through a rhododendron forest, pines, and carpets of galax. .Some 0.5 miles in, we’ll briefly stop to enjoy a fantastic view at a rock observation deck then follow the ridge with a enough uphills to make us know we’re actually hiking. Along the way, we’ll pass through a quiet glade of white pines as we make our way to the food stop at The Lump Overlook. The Lump is a rounded meadow that will offer amazing views of the surrounding landscape. Who knows, we might see a kite or two flying high above this breezy hilltop before we head back to the cars.10 miles, 2000’ elevation gain. Carpooling with be available from Greensboro and Winston Salem. If interested, please email or text by 5pm, Friday for information about when and where to meet. (R-30)
