Family Hike

It was a great day for the bike, but today it was a hike. A family hike. I was recently flipping through the pages of this very blog and came across this post. I realized it had been too long since we had a family hike, so I threw out the idea and everyone was on board.

We discussed trying somewhere new, such as the newly opened Powhatan State Park, but in the end we went to the 8,000 acre jewel that is right in our back yard. Yup, you guessed it: Pocahontas State Park.

Our route took us from the Qualla Parking Lot down Horner Forest Road to Fendley Station Trail. We followed Fendly for a while and hung a left on an access trail that took us down to the Beaver Lake Trail. We followed Beaver Lake counter-clockwise, crossed over the spillway, up by the CCC Museum and back onto Fendley Station. We followed Fendley down to the Qualla Connector and back out to the parking lot. All in all it was just over 5 miles.
