Our remaining hikes this year goes as follows:
- Graybeard Mountain Overlook (BRP) at MP363.4 and EB 49 to Black Mountain Campground EB 67.7. Estimated miles: 17.7 We think this can be a day trip.
- Julian Price Park (BRP) EB 13 to Raven Rock parking area (BRP) MP 289.5 EB 27.9. Estimated miles: 14.9 We also think this can be a day trip.
- Hiram Bare Road MP 250 EB 72.8 to Devil’s Garden Overlook (BRP) MP 235.7 EB 90.3. Estimated miles: 17.5 We think this can be a day trip.
- Pilot Mountain State Park – Hauser Road EB 0 to Hanging Rock State Park Visitors Center EB 36. This would be a total of 36 miles. We are thinking this would be a hiking weekend. Also to take into consideration: This is hunting season and I believe this portion is shutdown starting November 1st. We may need to hike this one in the Spring.
So 4 more hikes this season for a total of 86.1 miles. A little ambitious, for 5 days away. I’m shooting for 3 days, so some of these hikes may need to be punted to next year.
Update: We’ve decided to just forgo these mountain hikes and save them for the Summer months of 2018. Onward to Segment 9! (10/14/17)
