After being chased from the mountain by a forest fire on November 18th, we will continue from Skyland (note the hike from Panorama to Hogback has been rescheduled for Feb 3, 2018).  This 10 mile strenuous hike will continue our trek northward on the AT.  There is 1500 feet of ascent and 2400 feet of descent on this hike.  This will be a shuttle hike and will require you to walk a sustained 2 mph for the full 10 miles.  Because of the length of the hike and the short days of December we will leave the meeting place at 7:30am.

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. 

Optional stop for dinner on the way back if there is interest.
