Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
The weather Friday looks perfect and the leaves are stunning, so lets get out and hike! The Priest is a challenging 8.6 mile hike (out and back). It’s 3,000 feet in elevation gain. The incredible view at the top faces west, so it should be an ideal sunset hike. This way you don’t have to wake up crazy early, and can still have your Friday evening adventures back in Charlottesville. The times below are an estimate, and I tried to build in extra time.
