A beautiful taste of spring - violets are blooming.

This hike starts at the Round Meadow parking area just to the south on the Blue Ridge Parkway of Meadows of Dan exits. The trail goes immediately under a very tall bridge from the middle of the 20th Century through a very nice mature white pine stand with 100 foot tall trees! All sorts of nice flowers and ferns. Soon you come to Round Meadow Creek nice for wading. Here also one can simply walk to the main highway nearby coming out of Meadows of Dan. But proceeding upstream on Round Meadow Creek notice the dieback of the almost virgin Hemlock. The uphill portion back to the parking lot is to the right. Straight a forest road continues. Overall this is a short 1/2 mile walk but has a lot of variation and is VERY convenient for Blue Ridge Parkway travelers intent on getting back on the road quickly and also for the naturalist.
