    At question

    I am planning on taking a trip with the Scouts in May. We are walking from lost mt. shelter to Damacus, Virginia. My question to you all is is there good places to hang along the way? Any help would be great.

    Would imagine most all scouts will be tenting. Design your trip around the Scouts and not your ability to hang!! IMHO!

    Plus 1 to that! There are a few areas but no more than a mile or 4 tween ample trees. Plenty at all of the shelters between Lost Mt & Damascus!!!!

    No, No, No. That isn't allowed. You can't walk south from Lost Mtn to Damascus. It's too easy. You have to walk from Damascus up to Saunders Shelter.

    Trees everywhere, though. Hang anywhere.
