  1. Bobblets Gap Shelter – Buzzard Rock Sunset at Whitetop Mountain – AT VA


    This was a two day, two night hike to fill in gaps between Jennings Creek @ AT Mile 758.5 to Bryant Ridge Shelter @ AT Mile 762.3, Bearwallow Gap @ AT Mile 751.9 to Bobblets Gap Shelter @ AT Mile 748.9, and Whitetop Road @ AT Mile 492.5 to Elk Garden @ AT Mile 494.9. The trail between Jennings Creek and Bryant Ridge Shelter is pretty plain with not many views. On this trip I skipped the section between Jennings Creek and Bearwallow Gap because the ...

  2. McAfee Knob Sunrise – Appalachian Trail VA


    This was the finale of a three day hike up over McAfee Knob, across Tinker Cliffs to Lamberts Meadow Shelter, and back to Campbell Shelter to stage for a night ascent of McAfee Knob for the amazing sunrise before going back to the parking lot and home. I can’t say enough how much being there for the sunrise was worth it. It was inexplicably moving… The Southbound ascent was not bad in the dark and a simple headlamp was just fine. Full hike here: ...

  3. Wildcat D to Carter Notch Hut – Wildcat Ridge Trail from Pinkham Notch – Day 1


    This was a three-day Appalachian Trail section hike from Pinkham Notch / NH-16 to the Rattle River trailhead on US-2. We stayed overnight at the AMC Joe Dodge Lodge and hiked via the Wildcat Ridge Trail to the Carter-Moriah Trail and the Rattle River Trail. Day 1 plan was to get over the Wildcats and stay overnight at the Carter Notch Hut. The trail up Wildcat D is extremely steep and is listed on the NH Terrifying 25 list: https://www.theterrifying25.com/ ...

  4. Apple Orchard Falls, Guillotine, Thunder Hill Shelter, and "The Guardian Frog"


    This was an outstanding hike. The parking at Sunset Field on the Blue Ridge Parkway is quite large, but also popular. Despite it being foggy, it was very crowded. The hike down to the falls is about 1.3 miles and well worth the descent down ~147 stars near the bottom. The falls are extremely tall and beautiful. You can walk right up to the base of them. There is an upper cascade a couple tenths of a mile before the platform at the end that is also ...

  5. I finish up PA hiking across Cumberland Valley to Boiling Springs


    On this hike, I finally finished up PA! This section between Cove Mountain and Boiling Springs was completed as a number of day hikes and overnights. The 1st day, I slacked from the Parking at PA850 up Cove Mountain and back (10.5 miles). After that I drove over to the parking near Waggoners Gap just outside the Parking at Audubon Hawk Watch and hiked 0.9 miles South on the Tuscarora Trail to the Charlie Irvin Shelter for the night. It rained a little ...
