Apr 25-26: Hike the Appalachian Trail in Central Virginia! Rockfish Gap to Dripping Springs Rock: 14.5 miles. Come hike the Appalachian Trail in April, before it starts getting too hot. This section is just south of Shenandoah National Park, with great views of the Wintergreen resort from Humpback mountain. We will be hiking south to North, so we’ll leave some cars at Rockfish gap, drive south, and then start the hike. Some major climbs but great scenery as we hike the 9.5 miles. Stay in the Paul Wolfe Memorial Shelter, on the bank of lovely Mill Creek (water, privy, shelter). The next morning we will get up and have breakfast, then head out along a nice tree-lined trail, 5 miles to Rockfish gap. Unlimited number of participants. Hike Leader is Kevin Drevik (856)[masked] or [masked]. Please email questions to Kevin, or request pack list.
