i drew a crude overview map of the mt rogers area. it's by no means to scale, but i believe everything is correctly placed & named.
since people are coming from different directions, it shows three main ways into the area.
most of the area on this hand-drawn map is part of the "mount rogers area".
i just noticed that i didn't label the road on the left... it's hwy 600 or white top rd.
you will see an over-view of GHSP with a few noted points.
hopefully each person or group will have a topo map for more detail for GHSP or plan B. jeff, if you want a map, i could leave you one at the jeep. also, if jeff or anyone else wants me to try & call you when i get to GHSP & see how things look, i can try, but i don't know about reception. i get a signal on the ridge tops but i have doubts about from the lower places along the park road.
hopefully, we will be able to use wise shelter, but they are calling for high winds & cold temps... that's two of the things they use to determine if they should close trail heads.
between your road maps/google, the hand-drawn map, and a topo, you should be getting close, but feel free to ask questions. we don't want to leave anyone wandering around on the roads or the trails. ...tim
