    Overnight backpacking trip before MAHHA

    Sign-up for NOBO overnight hike before MAHHA.

    Start Date: Thursday 10/18/12
    Time: 9:30 am (subject to change.)
    Meet Up: Harpers Ferry Side of Potomac River Footbridge crossing to C&O Canal
    First Night camping: Ed Garvey.
    Second Night: MAHHA Crampton Gap.

    6 miles first day. Easy 4 miles into Gathland on Friday. Thursday start time may vary depending on who is hiking. Right now it's 9:30 am. Maybe earlier or later. But not by much.

    Sign-up if you'd like to join in.

    If you've never been to Harper's Ferry, one place to park is it the Visitor's Lot at the top of the hill before you enter into Harper's Ferry. You need to register and pay for overnight parking but your vehicle will be pretty safe. You ride a shuttle down into down and the shuttle drops you at our meet-up point by Potomac River. People at MAHHA will give us rides back to Harpers Ferry to pick-up vehicles. So no need to organize ride or shuttle vehicles on Thursday if you don't want to. Just park it, hike, and we'll get rides back on Friday.
