Blackrock  Sucess!

Awesome little hike with a bang for your buck. Not too crowded, great views, and a cool boulderfield atop the summit.

Another Quick Stop at Blackrock

Hiked to my favorite place in the southern district of Shenandoah National Park, Black Rock, after hiking Humpback Rocks and Turk Mt.

Trayfoot/Paine Run loop  Sucess!

I've climbed up Black Rock's boulders many times. This time, I stopped at Black Rock before I hiked the Trayfoot and Paine Run loop.

Third and last mountain of the day  Sucess!

Just a quick jaunt to play on the rock pile before a thunderstorm rolled through the area. Any chance of going to Trayfoot Mountain will have to wait until next time.

Trayfoot/Blackrock combo  Sucess!

Did this combo with my dog, Athena. Blackrock was a fun stop on the way to and from the summit of Trayfoot.

Snowy, Windy  Sucess!

I started from the Blackrock Summit parking area, which is not really fair. But I made up for it by then going nearby Treyfoot, and then descending all the way down to the Paine Run trail and going all the way up back to Blackrock. My butt was well kicked. Saw a bear afterward.

Piling On  Sucess!

I've scrambled up this Blackrock numerous times, usually on my way to or from Furnace Mountain and/or Trayfoot Mountain.

Stormy day  Sucess!

It was a fun little hike. I made it to the top only to find high winds and thunder rolling in. I got out of there ASAP!

Blackrock and Trayfoot  Sucess!

Spring was just starting. It was cold and windy at the summit, but the views were fantastic! The side trip to Trayfoot Mountain was worth it.

Great hike with kids, wife and dog. Good views and easy family hike

learning ground  Sucess!

I learned how to rappel here during a brief snow storm back in early 2005. As usual, thanks Aarash and Outdoors at UVA!!!

Route Climbed: From the Paine Runn Trail to the AT Date Climbed: May 21, 2004  Sucess!

Blackrock finished up a beautiful three day backcountry trip where we traversed Austin Mountain and climbed Furnace and Trayfoot Mountain as well. We watched a huge thunderstorm building while on the summit. The views were spectacular.

2nd hike of the day. The skies were clear, and the rock piles tremendous! This was definitely worth the trip.
