    For a non-hiker join in on the first night, how far from the TH to Friday night's camp. I may not hike, but I can walk a mile or two.

    The dates are for Friday thru Sunday. Frid, Sept 17. Sat, Sept. 18. & Sun. Sept. 19. From the car to the Sat. night camping spot is a little less than 3 miles. So from the Friday night campsite to Saturday night -- around 2.5 miles-ish.

    Still planning to come. Deciding which daughter might join me and how far they might want to hike....

    I think I can make it, and would plan on doing a pre-hike starting Wed. or Thurs.
    as work permits.

    I'll leave this up for a few more days for comments and then start the new thread. As it stands now, the information here will be the trip.

    Anyone know of a good link for directions to Dolly Sods?
