This 7.5 mile north to south hike on the Appalachian Trail will begin on Dismal Creek Road and follow a short trail to the upper portion of Dismal Creek Falls. From here a short spur trail will...
We will be meeting at the Hardee's restaurant in Pearisburg before the hike. The Hardee's is located at 528 N. Main Street, zip code 24134. The telephone number for the Hardee's is (540) 921-3503.
We will be leaving the Hardee's at 8:00 AM sharp for the trailheads. Please plan on arriving earlier for breakfast and directions.
Two of us did this hike in the reverse direction from the original plans. This put us finishing at the Falls of Dismal Creek instead of starting there. Better to get wet feet at the end rather than the beginning. Also made the shuttle easier.
The trail did lead through a field for a bit, which gave us some nice views. Near the end of the hike we crossed Kimberling Creek over a long suspension bridge.
This hike took us 3 hours and 48 minutes.
