Hike and Brew 2

Hike Date: Saturday: August 21, 2021

Hike Length: 7.5 Miles.

Hike Difficulty: ★★★☆☆   (3/5). Challenging.

This is a moderately challenging hike with a few rock scrambles.  It also offers some great views and waterfalls.

Meetup Time: 7:30AM (at the trailhead parking lot).  Hike begins at 8AM.


We’ll be going to a full-service brewery with a rooftop deck.  They have indoor and outdoor seating, plus great food and many beer choices.

Travel Distance and Time

The trailhead is about 90 minutes from Sand & Steel (75 miles).  Anyone needing a carpool just needs to let us know.  We’ll email you directions for the parking lot of the trailhead.  Shenandoah National Park will charge a parking fee for the day.

Food, Water, and Hike Package

Sand & Steel will supply each hiker with 2 liters of bottled water, 2 granola bars (various brands, flavors, and vegan options), 3 Beef Sticks (various flavors), 2 Rice Krispy Treats, and 2 servings of trail mix (individually wrapped).  This package includes the hike registration fee.  The Brewery will have plenty of food options after the hike as well.

Hike Registration Only

If you’d rather bring your own food and water, then just pick the event-only package.  This registration fee helps cover the insurance and planning costs associated with organizing the hike.  The Brewery will have plenty of food options after the hike.

Hike Difficulty Rating:

Difficulty ratings for hikes are very subjective.  Different aspects of hike such as length, elevation gain, temperature, and conditions can make a hike easier for some people than others.  Our ratings are for informational purposes only, please do your own reason on a hike before attempting.  When in doubt, contact the state or national park ranger’s station.  Park rangers know better than anyone the current conditions and difficulty of their trails.

★☆☆☆☆ Level 1: Easiest. Generally suitable for anyone who enjoys walking. Mostly level or with a slight incline. Generally, less than 3 miles.

★★☆☆☆ Level 2: Moderate. Generally suitable for novice hikers seeking a bit of a challenge. If you are brand new to hiking, we recommend you start with a level 1 or level 2 hike.  The terrain will involve a moderate incline and may have some steeper sections. Generally, 3 to 5 miles.

★★★☆☆ Level 3: Challenging.  Level 3 hikes can be quite challenging.  You should have hiking boots, hiking backpacks, and have several level 2 hikes before attempting a level 3.  Level 3 hike will break down an unconditioned person quickly. The terrain will involve a steady and often steep incline. Generally, 5 to 8 miles.

★★★★☆ Level 4: Hard. At level 4 and above you need to carry a lot of water with you, and be able to maintain hiking against steep, uneven terrain for long periods of time.  Generally, 7 to 10 miles.

★★★★★ Level 5: Very Hard. Level 5 hike are designed for well-conditioned, highly experienced hikers.  Expect long and steep trails, with rock scrambles, stream crossings, and other challenges. Generally, 8 miles and over.
