Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Old Rag Hike: 7.2 Miles Roundtrip, 4-5 hours, Difficulty: Moderate up, easy down, Elevation gain 2200’. Weather can be cold and windy. There is a 20% chance of rain on Sunday, so be prepared for a wet sky and soggy ground. Closed shoes are a must, and I suggest something waterproof. Please bring lots of water and a packed lunch.
Outdoors at UVa provides:
You must bring:
Water – at least 1.5 liter, that’s 1.5 big nalgene, or 3 regular sized water bottles
Lunch – there’s no place to buy lunch! Pack your own or bum off someone else!!
Proper clothing – it might rain, and it can be quite windy at the top. Bring an extra fleece, even if you don’t think you’ll need it.
Proper footwear – the trail is going to be wet and slippery. Ankle support and waterproofness are good.
