This will be a moderate / strenuous backpacking trip along the AT from Snicker's Gap to one of my favorite trail towns, Harper's Ferry, WV. We will meet up at 8:00 AM in Bearden Park and hit the trailhead at Snicker's gap.
The mileage will be an even split between Saturday and Sunday.
We will do 10 miles on Saturday, and stay at the David Lesser memorial shelter. The shelter sleeps 6, so plan on sleeping in a tent either way just in case the shelter is full.
Sunday we will do another 10 miles into Harper's Ferry and enjoy a post-hike meal before shuttling back to Snicker's Gap. The bulk of the elevation gain we will experience will be on Saturday, so Sunday's hike will be a bit easier.
We will need to have a car (or two depending on how many attendees) ready near Harper's Ferry to shuttle people and bags back to Snicker's Gap, so if you are able and willing to get to Harper's Ferry a bit early we can figure that out this week. Please post in the comments to coordinate carpools and shuttle cars. Thanks.
