    Default Good places to jump on the trail from I-77

    I am going to Fripp Island,SC in march and was wanting to stop and hike for a few and i was wondering if anyone knew of a good place to stop and hike for a few. I think Virginia is the only place where I-77 and the trail meet on the drive. I am sure even an Exit number would be better then nothing.
    Thanks

    The trail crosses over 77 very near Bland, VA. It does not cross it anywhere else.

    It crosses I-77 just north of Exit 52 Bland. Looks like you go east on hwy 42, than north on hwy 52.

    You're talking a few days, i.e. 2-4 days? Suggest you exit at I77 and hike from Bland to Pearisburg. Call the Rendezvous Motel in Pearisburg for a shuttle; they'll do either way. Or alternatively, hike out-and-back, either north or south. Southbound would be intersesting in that you'll cross Little Wolf Creek 12 times and you can stay at Chestnut Knob Shelter, a stone ediface, in an open field with views all around; you'll enjoy both sunset and sunrise.
