OVERVIEW

Alright! So, let me briefly explain my idea a.k.a. my theme. We will be hiking Sharp Top, so we should all wear sharp tops! Since we are hiking and probably shouldn’t wear dressy clothing, my idea is that we all wear shirts that say something about you. This can be anything from a shirt related to a club you’re in or a shirt you got on a cool vacation, or whatever. And if you don’t have something like that with you, don’t stress! Just make sure to dress comfortably 😊

Sharp Top is located in Bedford, Virginia which is roughly 1 hour and 45 minutes away. The hike is roughly 3.6 miles round trip with an elevation gain of about 1,540 ft. From the summit, you will have a stunning 360-degree view of surrounding area and let me just say that although I have never been there, it looks absolutely stunning. Hiking Upward estimates that this hike will take about 2.5 hours, but I always like to take time to soak in the scenery when I’m hiking, so I’m probably going to say that it will take 3.5-4 hours including about an hour to relax, enjoy the view, and take pictures once we reach the summit.
