Here is another Trail Maintenance Trip I am also turning into an Adventure Weekend for the group on the glorious North Fork Mountain Trail! As an added bonus we will finish our 10 mile "jaunt across the top" on Seneca Rocks for an experience you won't forget! Here is an area I normally only do as a backpacking trip in the middle of winter, but this year giving back for all those great experiences and views you non-winter backpackers have not enjoyed personally yet! As an added bonus we will either be group camping at Big Bend Campground (with great swimming/tubing/flyfishing opportunities), or we may end up with a cabin near Spruce Knob Lake, so stay tuned! I am not planning on doing elaborate meals on this trip, unless people really want to. This is a great Late Spring/Early Summer Trip with lots of grand and glorious adventure opportunities, so climb aboard to do some work, enjoy fabulous views on North Fork Mountain and finish on Seneca Rocks while also getting to enjoy the water either in Smoke Hole Canyon or on Spruce Knob Lake. If you cannot do 10 miles on Saturday, no problem, you can just do 4-5 by walking back the way we came in. So this one will be filled with lots of fun with some work to give back to one of the best hiking/backpacking areas on the East Coast! So another classic to put down on your calendars! The picture is North Fork Mountain on a past Winter Backpacking trip to give you an idea of the glorious views you will enjoy up there!
