Shut In Trail from Hard Times trailhead 10-12 miles (Moderate)

Let's go out and hike on the Shut In trail along the Blue Ridge Parkway.  We will start at the Hard Times trailhead on the parkway and go up for 5 or 6 miles and then hike back down.  We will keep a good pace and enjoy the scenery.  Meetup location is the Ingle's at Biltmore Square Mall and we will get there at 9am and leave promptly at 9:15am.  Please bring money for the drivers ($5 suggested donation) and friendly dogs are welcome.  Hope to see you there.

      Yes, 4,640 feet seems like too much elevation gain to me as well. If it were about 1,000 feet less, I'd believe it.

    Good workout hike, Forest. What's a mile or two extra among hiking friends, anyway? Glad to get out on a section of the MST trail I haven't been on before. Interested in exploring a couple of the side trails along that stretch. Thanks for organizing it, Forest.

    I'm sorry to be a no show. I overslept. I will make a conscious effort to fulfill future obligations.
