Details

Anybody interested in hitting the trail the weekend of Sept. 22nd to kick off the start of Fall? I'm back in the area after a long month away and am itching to get outside again. North Fork Mountain is the 24-mile shuttle hike out near Dolly Sods / Seneca Rocks, WV. Supposed to have outstanding ridge views throughout, but there is not water available on the trail, so we'd need to carry enough to last through the hike.

It will probably take about three and a half hours to drive out and stage cars. We'd obviously need at least two cars for the shuttle as well.

We will camp out somewhere around the mid-point (12 miles Sat, 12 miles Sunday).
