When: Saturday, March 27,[masked]:30 AM
Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
Elev Gain: 3255http://www.hikingupward.com/SNP/ThePeak/
We're going to try this one again -- when there's NO snow. I promise Adam and I won't get lost this time. :-)
One of the toughest day hikes in the entire SNP. The Peak circuit has spectacular views along the AT and Marshall Mountain, and a grueling straight up and down climb of The Peak two thirds along the hike. You also have the option of making this significantly easier and shorter by 3.0 miles, and not doing The Peak out/back to the summit.
If you are looking for a good workout with plenty of views this may be the hike for you! Also, if you plan on doing The Peak out/back make sure to start early, as this makes the total hike time over 7 hours. It's a steep climb.
Willing to also do this one in reverse which will make it even more nasty.
This is a LONG hike. To maximize daylight, the hike will start at 7:30 at the trailhead.
