Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Bear Church Rock
Up for getting in a hike before Thanksgiving break this Saturday?
I will be leading a hike to Bear Church Rock departing at 8:30 AM. We will depart from Echols Dorm Brick Wall.
This 8.5 mile hike to the top of Bear Church Rock starts at the Rapidan River, then hugs the Staunton River, before finally venturing a steep climb up to the summit, where we’ll enjoy a full panoramic overlook of the mountains.
