    Water in Northern PA

    In my recent hikes in PA, water has been a problem even when there isn't a drought.

    Does anyone have information on the following springs?

    I've managed to go up VA 826 twice. Once in my own car (a RAV4 with 2wd) and once in a shuttle, which I don't think had 4wd. I know a guy that took a minivan there also. I wouldn't recommend it...

    I also recommend Charlie's Bunion. And since the OP has done the fire tower from Fontana Dam, this will be an doable hike, if not just plain easy.

    Thanks for weighing in. One thing I've pondered even before the CV outbreak is the consequences of passing along the flu. Last time I had the flu, it was no big deal for me. But I don't know who...

    Just imagine a theme park ride where 1 out of every 30 riders died. Or even 1 out of 100. Probably some would volunteer to ride, but not me and not my kids.

    How will coronavirus affect hiking this year?

    Doesn't seem easy to predict. It might be a good time to be away from civilization, but not sure how smart it would be to sleep in shelters.

    Anyone thinking about this other than me?

    6th vote with a word of caution... Make sure your 11yo is very careful around Charlie's Bunion. It wouldn't be hard to fall.

    If you park at Clingman's Dome, the parking lot is about 400' lower than the trail. So when hiking north AND when hiking south you do that extra 400'. If you park...
