roan mountain 15 miles

 

THE DRIVE

This is a shuttle hike. We will drive 1.5 hrs to carvers gap @ the AT, pay $35 to be taken to Roan Mountain in the back of a pickup truck, then oddly hike all the way back to our cars. There is also a $3 per car parking fee at the hostel.

$35 and parking fee to be split between all, and don't forget to pay your driver from Earth Fare too! It's about 1.5 Hrs to Carvers Gap, then a 30 min shuttle ride to Roan. Remember $3-4 doesn't buy squat for fuel anymore.

THE HIKE

WE WILL KEEP A BRISK PACE!!!15 miles on the AT, rocky in places, fast pace strenuous hike. Please be sure of your abilities before you rsvp!!

Gorgeous views, huge balds, wooded. No water or hot dog stands; so pack it in.

Meet in the parking lot of earth fare westgate. 8 am sharp. dogs encouraged

    Forest and Allen couldn't be more right.....great hike with great hikers!!! But I don't think there were enough mishaps to make this a typical Mike hike. Maybe next time!

    This was a killer great hike today! The weather was ideal and the views along the balds are nothing less than spectacular. Thank you Bandit for organizing and thanks to the other six great hikers that came out today and made it a very special day. The beer and pizza at My Father's Pizza at the end was a fitting end to a great day. Thanks again to everyone.

    Auggie took offense at the crack about "hot dog stands" until I explained that you weren't talking about him. Sorry I'm going to miss this hike...but only sort of.

    I hate to miss the chance to "oddly hike" but it should be perfect timing.
