Monday Rollers

We Usta be the Monday Strollers
Now we’re the Monday Rollers
Rollin, Rollin, Rollin
Though the streams are swollen
Keep them hikers rollin
Movin, Movin, Movin
(Unless they’re disapprovin)
Keep them hikers movin
(above lyrics with apologies to the Blues Brothers)

When this group was first formed over 30 years ago it was named the Monday Strollers, being the easiest in the hiking difficulty chain among the original three hiking groups.  With the formation of two other groups, our group was renamed the Monday Pisgah Hikers, and we are three up and three down (right in the middle) in the group difficulty ratings chain. The Pisgah Hiker hike ratings are from 1-10; higher ratings indicate greater difficulty. Ours are mostly less than R6.  See Difficulty Scales.

Regular departure time and place: The Lowe’s Assembly area in the Lowe’s parking lot at the curbline closest to and parallel with US64.  Please be there by 8:50 a.m. to allow time for sign-up, chitchat and whatnot.  We leave promptly at 9:00 a.m.   For DuPont hikes, check the description for a 2nd meet-up location and time for hikers coming from Henderson County.
