I've been to Mount Rogers (Graysons Highlands SP) multiple times, but all the trips were 10 to 12 years ago. Could someone with more a recent visit or less gray hair remind me where the tree challenged areas are? I remember the area around Wise Shelter and the midpoint of the Pine Mtn Trail near the spring had lots of great trees. I don't remember if there are suitable trees around the Thomas Knob Shelter or Rhodo Gap. I'm leading a group of first timers otherwise I would just hike until the trees are workable.
