Join Parkway rangers at 10 a.m. on Friday, May 31 for the first Blue Ridge Parkway Hike of the Week of the season.

Parkway rangers will take a moderate, 1.5 mile round trip hike to the old site of Rattlesnake Lodge. They will explore the lush forest that thrives there today and visit the remains of Dr. Ambler’s famous Rattlesnake Lodge to learn what life was like at his mountain retreat.

Interested hikers should meet at the dirt pull-off by the southern entrance of Tanbark Tunnel, Milepost 374.4. Bring water, wear good walking shoes, and be prepared for changeable weather.
