BeckHykes: March 19, 2021 What's up, everybody! I don't talk sports too often on the channel but as I am uploading this video

we are just starting March Madness, I think it's one of the more enjoyable times in sports seeing 68 college teams compete against one another for the ultimate prize. Also, filling out your bracket is enjoyable as well!
As for today's video, I was able to get up onto the Blue Ridge Parkway and get some hikes in. Waterrock Knob is the first part of the three hikes I completed that day. The views from Waterrock Knob are tough to beat for the distance you travel, the parking below offers places to watch the sunrise and sunset while spaces to enjoy picnics. The hike itself is at 0.5 it says to the summit of Waterrock Knob but the entire trail is straight up and can be challenging even for experienced hikers. Overall, the Waterrock Knob area is one of my favorite locations throughout the Blue Ridge Parkway!
Beck Rating - 8.1/10. It is a family-friendly & short hike with a beautiful view at the summit. Isn't much better than this. Though can get busy on nice weather days or in the spring/summer and fall months, it can be worth taking the time to visit the summit and enjoy the beautiful views from above.

Beck Tracker - 40.4. Slowly adding the milage up. Have some hikes planned throughout the Parkway in the next few days. I get roughly around 7-8 miles on this three-part video.
