Thursday Morning Hike - Mountains to Sea Trail from Folk Art Center

THIS IS THE SAME HIKE AS THIS WEEK'S TUESDAY MORNING HIKE.

We meet in the parking lots on the south side of the folk art center, first lot on the right.

Meetup at Folk Art Center, form shuttles and leave for trailhead on Parkway at Craven Gap no later than 9:10. We will hike on the Mountains to Sea Trail back to the Folk Art Creek, about  5.2 miles. Trail will be mostly downhill.  We should be back to Folk Art Center before noon, car(s) at start of hike at Craven Gap will need to be retrieved.

Dog policy: This hike is mostly on Blue Ridge Parkway property.  From the Parkway website: "Dogs and other pets are allowed on the Parkway but must be on a leash (not to exceed six feet) or otherwise under your physical control."

    PS we feel it would have helped to have had the phone number of the Leader, so that we could have called at the point we got lost. What's the policy on that?

    Hey there, we are pretty new to the area and are still finding our way - but there were 3 of us and we were confused with the directions to the Folk Art Center, in that the directions took us into the back entrance, which says at the gate no entry!! so we got lost and didn't make it ! Shame we will be back another time. Sorry we missed it. Have a great week all.

    Greetings, I drove past Cravens gap but wasn't sure where I was and it was raining so I turned around and came home. Google maps said 15 minutes and I had already driven 30. I have no PPS and haven't learned my way around yet. See you next time and thanks. I tried!
