  1. Paul C. Wolfe Shelter – Appalachian Trail – Albright Loop Trail


    Happy New Year! Another 3 miles down (and back) - 1991.8 to go! This was a quick 2 day hike where I wanted to get some practice in very cold conditions again. The weather did not disappoint, it was 1°F! I parked at the Humpback Rocks parking area on the Blueridge Parkway and hiked a short 3.6 miles to the Paul C. Wolfe Shelter to set up camp. Total loop distance, including down to the shelter, is 6.4 miles. The shelter has great water and privy. ...

  2. Blackrock Summit, Hut, and Spring - Shenandoah National Park


    This is the section south of the Falls over Blackrock Summit and to the Hut. Blackrock hut is nondescript and has an unreliable water source. I liked the area anyway and the surrounding hikes over Blackrock and around Doyles River Falls and Jones Run Falls are very good! Distance hiked this weekend was 14.2 miles.

    I'm continuing to creep my way south though SNP on the AT. I might actually get it done this year. LoL. This is one of the better hikes along the Appalachian Trail I've had in Shenandoah National Park (at least everywhere North of here). The blue blaze loop around the falls is well worth it! Starting at the Doyles River Trail parking lot at Skyline Drive mile post 81.1, I followed the Doyles River Falls Trail south past the upper and lower Doyles ...

  4. Get your Zen on! South River Falls - SNP AT

  5. Hightop Mountain, Hut, and Springs - Appalachian Trail - Shenandoah National Park


    This was a great hike in the Shenandoah National Park, from South River Picnic Area to Hightop Hut. It is approximately 13 miles round trip and has a couple persistent uphill sections of climb.
    As usual, I’ve posting some videos showing the trail, the shelter, legal campsites along this section of trail, and more importantly (to me) the springs. 😊
    The Hightop Hut is a fairly standard 3 sided structure with an internal mezzanine ...
