      EVENT DETAILS
      Backpack ("Crest Zone"), Mt. Rogers National Recreation Area (Jefferson NF)

      The Mt. Rogers NRA and adjacent Grayson Highlands State Park, in southwest Virginia, make for one of the most scenic backpacking areas in the southeast, with huge open grassy meadows fringed by spruce trees and rhododendron bushes, usually flowering in June. Portions actually look like the western US. Were doing a new campsite from the past several years, and will start and end on SR 600 that runs between Mt. Rogers and Whitetop Mountain. Our camp will be at an off-trail and rarely used site on the north end of Brier Ridge; we will hike in on the Appalachian Trail and out on the VA Highlands Horse Trail, around 3 miles each day.

      Rated Easy. Driving distance, 165 miles.

      Must preregister with Will Skelton: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.for meeting time and location.
