Hike/Camp the Appalachian Trail in Virginia! Earn your AT trail name, VA, USA

  • Jul 26, 2013 · 7:00 PM

"One-fourth of the Appalachian Trail lies in Virginia. It varies from easy hiking to very difficult rock scrambling, from busy National Parks to isolated wilderness areas." Hike/Camp the AT in pieces. Check off sections on your AT trail map as your finish them. We will methodically attempt hikes, trail runs and fastpacking weekend trips in order to accomplish this. Who knows... if we finish VA... then we can hit the other States! No need to take off 3-4 months of your life to do this. We'll split VA into Blue Ridge Parkway South, and Shenandoah National Park North (and pieces in between).

Earn your AT trail name! Tradition says that everybody on the trail gets a name! Ha! We'll start off with some hiking and trail runs in the Peaks of Otter area. So far, we've been meeting (at least) once a month to bag another section. Tentatively, the Last Friday of each month. We will flesh out the details as folks sign up.  So far, we've been working with whomever says they want to go, and synchronizing schedules.

    Not sure what the plan is for this, but if anyone is interested I'm hiking from Rt 311-AT intersection north of Roanoke to Bearwallow Gap. I have a shuttle set up for Friday at 5PM to drive me from Bearwallow to Rt 311-AT Int. Need to leave HR area by noon on Friday. Will crash at a shelter on Friday evening and start first thing Saturday morning. 20 mile days with Monday being short day. Let me know if interested.
