This trip offers several unusual features: Old Rag-style rock scrambles, ruins of an iron-working camp, a western-facing rock outcropping where we can watch the sun set, and last and by far not the least – it passes by the half-way point of the Appalachian Trail! At the top of the ridge, we can watch the sun set from west-facing Sunset Rocks, then return to our camp set up by an AT shelter. It is worthy to note that the rock scramble may make this trip unsuitable for anyone with mobility limitations.
Gear sharing, meal planning, carpooling and all other details will be worked out by email the week before the trip.
WWO has a limited amount of backpacking equipment to lend as a member benefit.
This trip is Saturday to Sunday.
Registration Deadline: Wednesday, October 17, 2018
