    I had a wonderful day. The hike was grand and the fellowship was fun and refreshing. There are really no words to describe Bob's Place, except maybe "Iconic".....and the outhouse, why it truly took my breath away.

    Had a good time on the hike today even though it was a little steamy. Lucked out on the weather. Good group of hikers. Then, a fun stop at Bob's. An experience that everyone should enjoy at least once.

    Great hike and great people. It was a good workout. Rumbles of thunder on our way out but we made it out before the rain came. Thanks for leading Keith.

    Due to the change of elevation gain making the hike a VS, I decided to take the other hike to Eastatoe instead Sunday. The miles didn't deter me , but I'm not sure about the climbing.

    Thanks for doing the pre-hike and adding the new stats. I have stats from a previous hike at 9.5 miles/2020. Looking forward to the hike. Remembering lots of steps at the beginning?

    This past Wed. we did a scout hike of this trail. The trail is in excellent condition and there is a nice flow of water over the falls making for a good photo opportunity. Fortunately the road closure on Hwy 178 occurs beyond the trail head turnoff. GPS stats for the hike show it to be 9.4 miles and 1980 ft of EG. Please note this is a change from the stats shown above and changes the hike from a S to a VS. Most of the EG occurs on the first half of the hike in.

    For those that want to meet up at Holly Springs plan to be there at 9;00 am. See you Saturday.

    If this was a Sunday Hike it would have to have been an all day if it was for 10 miles (dont think so)..... Anyway, after you have all confused me completely I hope that on July 20th.....we will be hiking with Ron...... :-)
    See ya!

    This was a Sunday hike earlier that got cancelled due to weather.

    Weather permitting!

    Ron - will you lead this hike for Keith? Last word was he was looking for a sub since he is in Minnesota. Not sure if he will be back in time.

    July 7, 2013

    • Ron B.

      I didn't know there was a need for a leader. I would have led it, though I haven't done the hike for 4 yrs. Guess it is set for the 20th now and we'll be there. Now, we have to decide if we want to do Wes's hike or come up w/ our own for the 13th.

    Keith do you still need help with this hike?
