Event Notes:

This is a 6.1 mile hike in 50% forest. 1,200 ft of elevation gain. I rate this hike moderate. Wonderful views, bring that camera. It is a loop hike. This is one of my 5 favorite hikes. We will have excellent views of Rock City. This is a pot luck hike. At the finish, let's share snacks and finger food. Covered picnic benches. Parking fee is $5.00.

Trail Notes:

This is like a Remington plus hike. A little bit further, 6 miles vs 5; a lttle bit higher, 1,200' elevation gain versus 800', but the views are better! Hike duration is 2+ hours. Wall Point is a ridge that overlooks Blackhawk on the right, and looks up at Mt. D. on the left. Wall Point is in Alamo. Bring your camera! Bring the exact change for the parking fee.
