    Ideas for Next VA-Hike-n-Hang Trail

    Just wanted to get some feedback on those interested in a Hike-n-hang in GWNF, JNF, SNP, areas...If anybody is interested, feel free to chime in and if you have a trail you think would be good then please share.

    Also, was thinking we could do this trip for early fall...

    I'm interested. I don't have an interesting trail to offer up though. I'm hoping to get out there any day now, but I need to score an underquilt before I go anywhere, it's too cold.

    id be upfor another spring trip a few summers and a few more in the fall. I liked the WR hike and a few short over nighters in SNP are appealing

    Post em up and see what bite's. I may be in for another, but have to see the dates first before I could even think of committing cause of my work schedule. I shouldn't even be thinking about thinking, come to think of it.....

    I've done a fantastic circuit in SNP of White Oak/Cedar Falls (both are great) over to Old Rag, then up to Robertson and back to Skyline Drive once before and would love to repeat it. We camped on Old Rag, below the summit per regulations, the first night and on Robertson the second. Robertson may very well be my favorite camp ever... We had the whole mountain to ourselves.

    I'd be up for it (and hopefully actually around this time). I've done the Mount Marshall Circuit in northern SNP. It's great if you're lightweight and don't mind ending a trip going uphill (assuming you start from Skyline). If you start from the bottom, you can literally roll back to your car.

    I have two hikes I have been wanting to do for a long time now in GWNF. Both are on the border of VA and WV in the North River Ranger District. First is Wild Oak Trail it would be a three day hike 10.2,5.2 and 10.1 miles per day. The second is a spin off of the Wild Oak Trail called North River Gorge Trail. This is a much shorter hike but with trout fishing for 4.0 miles. This trail might be more of a one nighter but more relaxing. I have WW Kayaked the North River once, fun little creek. I have also fished the top and bottom but I have never hiked the trail. It's beautiful area this time of year. http://www.hikingupward.com/gwnf/NorthRiverGorge/

    The wild oak trail sounds like alot of fun. Would like to possibly do that sometime. But would have to wait till fall before I got a chance to go on that one.
    The North river gorge trail, I could do much sooner because its only for one night.

    Saturday- Sunday trip? Lets do it! My float trip is a flop. I may just cancel it and use that weekend for The North River Gorge Trail hike
