"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.
