So greatly enjoyed the time to take in the fall colors...the trip out was like driving through a painting. Indeed gorgeous day. Indeed big group. Thanks to Steve, Jim & Co. for herding us all. Appreciated the opportunity to hike with this group - I remain convinced that hiking attracts fabulous spirits....thanks all for the company.

A lot of new people I did not get to get a chance to learn much about yet, so everyone has to come back out soon so we can get to know each other better! Oh, the hike was GREAT and the people and weather EVEN BETTER! Thanks to Steve, Larke, Kirsten, Svetlana, Kelly, Patricia, Hollis, Rosie, Becky, and Hua for keeping me straight and moving forward! Joking aside, we cannot run large groups without so many great leaders and of course smart, tough, fun people to play with. This will be a great training hike series with unbelievable payoff in the end on our "Extremely Beautiful and
Challenging Hikes" next year, so thanks everyone and see you on the next one!

Ok, I am intimidated from all the different groups within groups so I am chickening out. I have to drive an hour and 20 minutes to get there (sounds like a lot of you do as well) and I am just now realizing I am a big ol sissy. I want to break out and meet people but have been here in isolation since 2005 maybe too late. Have a great trip. Be safe.

GREAT hike. Thanks Steve, Kirsten and JIM. This was a good hike to evaluate my hiking abilities. I would have to agree with Jim, this is going to be one of the easiest training hikes. I didn't find this hike too difficult. I loved that we added Hawksbill and the AT. This was a new add on from White Oak. I need to work on my speed since I was in the middle of the pack in the 1/2 Pres. group. Pics were beautiful!

Hi there, I'm in too! So are most people just meeting up at the trailhead then b/w 8:30-8:45am? I'll plan on doing the easier ascent up White Oak Canyon and join the slow gang :) I've got wheels now so can take people from DC, but I'm heading to the VA 'burbs after the hike, so that's the catch...looking forward to it!

It seems like all of you already arranged carpool some where else after I read the postings below. Am I the only one who will be waiting at the meetup place McDonald for carpooling? I am coming from SW Waterfront area. I will like to car pool w others and will share the gas cost. Thanks.

For those of you new to this series, this hike is done at speed and not a social hike for the average hiker. It is social for the veterans, but will get you in shape. For the series (which runs into next Spring) we will also have our now famous "Half+" events for those of you working on getting into great shape as well. This first hike is at the bottom rung of the ladder for what we do, but hey, have to start somewhere!
