AT#2 VA Chester Gap to Snickers Gap

With Rob and Steve Montgomery and Stan (my son)..before wedding!

Mile 971 6/26 From 522 hiked 10 miles uphill to Manassas Gap Shelter. The trail is fast and easy devoid of rocks and roots that can slow oneís pace.6/27 ...and then onto Sky Meadows to eat a fantastic lunch where I broke my MSR Mini Water filter on the stone patio trying to store it!
6/28 Hiked to Rod Hallow Shelter passing by Ashly Gap at mile 983. Had a piped spring for water. 6/29 Hiked the infamous Roller Coaster to mile 997 Snickers Gap passing by Bear Den Hostel at mile 996. The Roller Coaster is tough in hot weather but doesnít compare to trails in Maine. Itís main aggravation is that itís never-ending! There is a sign inbound marking its start.
