Weekend Camp At Hanging Rock
Friday August 10th at 6am-Sunday at 7pm
Hanging Rock State Park in Danbury, NC has plenty of trails to explore with several caves and waterfalls.
This is a four-hour drive from our carpool spot in Yorktown.
Breakfast for campers will be provided Saturday and Sunday Morning.
-Friday afternoon we will hike the steep 3 mile round trip to "The Hanging Rock" before setting up camp. This relatively short but often challenging hike is well worth the spectacular vistas at the top.
-Saturday our group will explore the many trails making sure to visit a few caves and waterfalls. With all the trail options in this park, individuals can opt for moderate or challenging day hikes from the campsite. There is a lot to explore.
-Sunday we can have a day of leisure, explore nearby parks or hike more trails at Hanging Rock.
Hikers will need to bring all the provisions and gear needed to live in a campground for two nights (it's not wilderness camping, there is a bathhouse).
A packing checklist will be posted here soon...
There is the town of Danbury nearby which has restaurants, grocery stores and such.
