My friend and I want to do some of the Shenandoah park section of the AT trail... We currently have not gone out for more then 3-4 nights on a hike and I decided to take 9 days off of work and am starting to plan the trip.
I wanted any suggestions for our first stint on the AT trail (first time not doing a loop back to the car), like which way is better to go (North to South, or South to North), where is the best place to leave a car at one end and get a shuttle to the other, etc. Is it doable to go from Harpers Ferry to the center of Shenandoah park ( and leave the car there for easy access )?
We aren't really concerned if we do the whole thing, just looking for a nice 7-9 day hike on the trail and I have not done any part of VA yet. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
