About the Event

PATC Map 7 / VA Bus

$36.  11 mi., 3300 ft. ascent. Moderate hike: 7½ mi., 1600 ft. ascent.

It should be added, however, that few of the individual ascents are over ½ mile long.  Long hikers will walk about 1 mile on Rte. 649 to the intersection with the AT and hike north.  They will be joined by the moderate hikers, who start at the intersection of VA Rte. 604 and 605 (Frogtown), walk up Rte. 605, then turn north onto the AT.  The hike will end at the trail’s junction with Route 7 (Snickers Gap).
