There are a few gaps we didn’t get to during Gappy Trails 2017, so we’re extending the series into 2018!

Each year, tourists flock to Virginia for its sandy beaches, majestic mountains, and historical landmarks…but outdoorsy types like us know our greatest treasure is actually our vast collection of rocky, picturesque gaps!  With this in mind, CVT is proud to present a yearlong tour of the Great Gaps of Virginia!

This will be our first trip to Mudhole Gap, which is part of Massanutten Mountain and next door to Signal Knob, a CVT favorite.  At nearly 13 miles, this is a long hike, but the folks at HikingUpward claim it’s easier than a lot of shorter hikes.  Let’s see if they’re right!

The return time is approximate.  If you have plans that require you to be back in Richmond at a specific time, please communicate this prior to carpooling with someone, or consider choosing a different hike. 

We’ll stop on the way to the trail head to fuel up on warm, yummy apple donuts at the world famous Apple House!  Optional stop for what will surely be a well earned dinner on the way back if there is interest.
