Ascent Trip Report

Wind Rock is a popular cliff with a panoramic view, just 0.25 miles on the Appalachian Trail northbound from VA 613. To get to the actual HP (4128), leave the AT and follow the ridge another 0.35 miles to the site of the long-gone Stony Creek Fire Tower. I did this one as part of a 6-mile round trip hike to White Rocks, the COHP for Craig VA. See that trip report for more details.
