Join the ranger at the Singecat Overlook on October 19th and experience the joy of fall hiking.

The hike begins at 2:00 pm on October 19th and there is no fee to attend. Singecat Overlook is located at Milepost 345.3.

It is a moderately strenuous two mile hike east along the Mountains to Sea Trail on top of the ridge that crosses over the Blue Ridge Parkway. Conversations with the ranger will include Parkway history, the Mountains to Sea Trail, hiking etiquette and much more.

There is a pleasant view from this overlook which includes Mackey Mountain to the right and Onion Knob to the left. The true origin of the name Singecat Ridge is not known, but the ridge was singed by a fire in 1955. New growth has recovered the once bare ridge.

Make sure to wear comfortable and stable footwear, proper attire for the given weather conditions and to bring water!
