Winter bushwack  Sucess!

This was a very fun bushwhack around and over large and interesting rocks, some that are reminiscent of Stonehenge. The views to the south and east are great. Caution- there were lots of large dead weeds indicating that this bushwhack would be much less pleasant in the summer. And next time, I'll try to look harder for Bear Church Rock which is further down the Jones Mt Trail.

Bluffing  Sucess!

I climbed it in December 2015 and April 2016. A fun bushwhack to a worthy peak. I think Bluff Mountain has some of the most interesting rocks in Shenandoah National Park. Shhh - don't tell anyone!

A difficult bushwhack  Sucess!

I hiked up the Staunton River Trail to the Jones Mountain Cabin and stayed overnight. The next day, I went up to Bear Church Rock and enjoyed the views before continued to Bluff Mountain. It was very difficult getting traction on the slope when I climbed off the ridge to avoid the boulders. Eventually, I reached the top. The fall colors were gorgeous that weekend.
