We will meet at the Lower Bear’s Den Lot first driveway to right – immediately off of Rt. 7
We will gather for a approximately 3.5 mile round trip hike to Bear’s Den Overlook and then on to a beautiful mountain stream on the Appalachian Trail. This is a moderate to easy hike with some rocky and uphill sections.

We will spend some time enjoying the beauty and color of fall from the Bear’s Den Overlook on the AT. We will walk just past the first overlook (which is usually crowded at this time of the year) to a more secluded overlook with an equally expansive view.

We will then continue the hike to the beautiful mountain stream for some time to quietly reflect on this micro-region and sounds of the water. On our return trip we will stop at an AT camping area, along the trail, for a fire and S’mores before we head back to our cars.

There is an option of visiting Twin Oaks Winery about 5 minutes from the parking lot after the hike.

Cathy Norman lives on Blueridge Mountain Rd. near the Appalachian Trail and enjoys guiding hikes and interpreting the natural world in this beautiful region. She is a Hatha Yoga teacher, a mindfulness instructor and a Virginia Master Naturalist.
