Elkwallow/Piney Ridge/Thornton River Hike

Starting at Elkwallow Gap, we will hike the AT, descend to the Thornton River by way of the Piney Ridge and Fork Mountain trails. After lunch along the River, we'll return to Elkwallow by way of the Thornton River and Appalachian Trails. No guarantees, but bear sightings are a definite possibility. This will be an 11 mile hike with 2400 feet of elevation gain.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
