Roaring Run is a recreation area in the Jefferson National Forest in Botetourt County. It includes views of old iron furnaces and a one mile walk along Roaring Run Creek and a very pleasing waterfalls at the end. Some of the flowers found at this time should be fairy wand, columbine and hoary puccoon, pink lady slipper, and gay wings. This a good birding area so bring binoculars. Hopalong Cassidy Pass is a shale barren. It is a good place to see dry land species. Species such as birds foot violet, bowman’s root, ebony speenwort and shale barren bindweed are featured. Between the two areas over 70 species of plants were identified on a 2011 field trip. This is and all day trip so bring, water, rain gear, boots, and lunch. The walking is fairly easy. Public welcome.
