BRISTOL, Tenn., Oct. 8, 2015 – King University alumni will continue hiking the Appalachian
Trail (AT) on Saturday, Oct. 17. Alumni are invited to enjoy a 4.5-mile hike beginning
at Taylors Mountain Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Vinton, Va., near Roanoke.
Participating alumni will hike approximately five miles on a moderate AT trail.
Throughout 2015, King University’s Office of Alumni Relations has hosted Appalachian
Trail hiking opportunities in locations such as House Mountain State Natural Area
in Knoxville, Tenn., the Iron Mountain Trail in Damascus, Va., and trails in Shady
Valley and Hampton.
“The alumni hikes have been a great success,” says Michael Webb, director of Alumni
Services at King University. “The next hike on Oct. 17 outside of Roanoke, Va., will
provide a new backdrop for our hike. Central Virginia is one of the most beautiful
places in the United States. I am excited to spend time with alumni on the Appalachian
Trail. The fall leaves should provide great scenery for our trip.”
Cost for the event is free for all involved. The Oct. 17th hike is on the Appalachian Trail as it runs along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Alumni
will gather at 9 a.m. at Taylors Mountain Overlook (mile marker 97 on the Blue Ridge
Parkway). Transportation will be provided from King University, leaving at 7 a.m.
from the Student Center Complex on the main campus in Bristol, Tenn.
Those interested in the hike should RSVP to Dawn McMurray via phone at 800.621.5464
or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
