***Some of us missed this one so I’m re-posting with Steve’s┬áblessing. Thanks Steve.***

This is a series of hikes for those that want to chalk off the 100 or so miles of the A.T. in Shenandoah National Park but are just not up for 10-12 miles at a time and want to keep going through the summer. These are half sized chunks, shuttle hikes, and the pace will be close to 1.5 mph and even less on uphills. I will match the group’s pace to that of the sweeper. Take note that this is a way slower pace than any other hike series CVT does. Note that 5 miles @ 1.5 mph = more than 3 hours of hike time.

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.

Since these are shorter hikes, let’s combine them with visits to cool places (if available) and local wineries for tastings and bon vivanterie.

Cool place: Swannanoa Palace
Winery: Afton Mountain
