Covergirl, Heavy D and I have been itching to see the rest of this loop after bowing out of the Sufferfest. So here is the loose plan:
We'll depart from Vienna Metro North lot at 5pm Friday night, and drive this route to the Massanutten Visitor Center parking lot on Route 211. We'll take the Wildflower Trail from there south until it links up with the Massanutten South Trail, where we'll hang a right and start our CCW loop. A couple miles of climbing should bring us to a cliff top campsite where we can hopefully squeeze everyone in. This site is dry so don't forgot to bring plenty of water!
Saturday morning we'll follow the Orange blazes south, past Boone shelter, and then turn back north on Cub Run Road. We'll find a nice campsite somewhere here, maybe hiking a total of 20 miles, though we can play that by ear. Water should be plentiful all day.
Sunday we'll continue north and finish up the 15 or so remaining miles - picking up the Massanutten South trail again, then following the Browns Hollow trail back to our cars. We'll grab some lunch on the way home.
You'll need either PATC Map H or the Nat Geo Trails Illustrated #792.
We have BA, GQ and myself (Savage) driving. That should be plenty.
Be prepared to embrace the mud!
