Roanoke 7 Summits

(All ages) The Roanoke 7 Summits is back with new summits and new challenges. This is a unique event that combines our region’s premier trails with an active living awareness program. The Roanoke 7 Summits is a fun play-off of the international mountaineering challenge of climbing each of the seven continents highest mountains. By taking this challenge you’ll hike to the summit of seven of the Roanoke Region’s top mountain summits in a seven week span. It demands a great attitude, determination, exploration, and pushing yourself to new levels.

Each summit has multiple group hike dates through Roanoke Parks and Recreation. These will be formally guided hikes that are not included in the Roanoke 7 Summits registration fee, but for only $6 per hike, are a great chance to get out there with an experienced hiker, meet hiking buddies, and enjoy the energy of the group effort to get to each summit. Of course, if you prefer, you can also do each hike on your own.

Your official registration includes a t-shirt, consistent e-mail posts and status updates, access to the Roanoke 7 Summits website with hiking routes and information, access to all 7 Summits and Beyond events, and extra motivation! New this year…Summit Selfies and a Summit Celebration at Soaring Ridge Brewery!
