Hi all --
Some friends and I are planning to backpack in the Grayson Highlands-Mt Rogers area later this spring. None of us are familiar with this area and we were wondering about hammock hanging spots for about 10 people.
Attached is an image showing the route we may take in blue with mile markers. Other options are to cut it short using the red and green routes. We initially planned to camp at mile marker 7 on this image, and then near the shelter near Mt. Rogers. The problem is that we don't know whether there are good hanging spots at these locations.
Can any of you familiar with this area recommend good hanging spots using the routes marked on the attached map? I've also included a link to a Google drawing below that can be edited if you would like to mark spots with an X or something.
Also, if you have suggestions for different routes or places worth visiting that we don't have on our routes, please let us know.
