3rd annual KT Fall Foliage Backpacking Trip & KHT section #10

Needs a location

Section hike #10 will be a 3 day backpacking trip along the 45 mile Knobstone Trail. We'll meet at the trailhead inside of Deam Lake and drive north, caching as a group in 2 places before we start at Spurgeon Hollow.
Day one is the easiest, as we hike just over 13 miles to Elk Creek Lake. Day 2 is the long one, hiking 17 miles and camping near the New Chapel trailhead. This leaves 16 miles on the final day, getting about a 4 mile warmup before conquering Mt OneSixty... then off to Round Knob and finally Deam Lake.
