Moderate Hike 10 miles

NOTE: My hikes are more leisurely....with plenty of breaks for water and snacks....if you are fast hiker and wants to hike fast, this may not be the hike for you.

Well be hiking from Little Creek camp grounds to Anna Ruby Falls and back. This trail offers a serene walk through dense patches of rhododendron, mountain laurel, hemlock, and ferns. It travels up and over Hickory Nut Ridge and Smith Mountain through impressive hardwood stands and several small mountain brooks and springs.

Plenty of water, some snacks and big lunch. If you have a hiking shoes its better. Trekking pole if you have it, if not you can find a walking stick on the trail and rain gear incase of unexpected rain.
