Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Along this hike you will pass over the summit of Meadow Mountain (elevation 3,100'), where a rocky outcrop on the west side of the Trail provides a view across the valley toward Torrey Ridge. You will also walk over the top of Bee Mountain (elevation 3,000'), which offers views when the leaves are off the trees. At Hanging Rock, the destination of this trip, you will be treated to a view of the peak of Three Ridges (elevation 3,970') and out across rural Tye River Valley (elevation 900') to the hulking mass of The Priest (elevation 4,063').

From Reids Gap, hike south on the A.T. At mile 0.8, cross the summit of Meadow Mountain. At mile 1.7, reach Maupin Field and a trail junction. The Maupin Field Shelter is 300 feet to the right along the Mau-Har Trail."
