    I recently did a day hike in GWNF west of Woodstock. I parked off Forest Service 92 at Stony Creek and hiked the following counterclockwise loop.

    From parking area at Stony Creek, hike up Stony Creek Trail about 3.3 miles to the PATC cabin at Sugar Knob. Hang a left on Tuscarora Trail to the WV line. Hang a left on Mill Mtn trail and follow the ridgeline back towards the parking area. Then descend down a steep trail called Big Schloss Cutoff.

    THat entire loop is long but the the first section, Stony Creek Trail, follows the creek for maybe 2 miles and there are bunch of nice streamside campsites there that are all fine for hammocks.

    Here's a link to my day hike - check out the first part up to Sugar Knob. I took some still pics and also a little video of the campsites.

    hope the link works

    Might be able to make something happen May 31- JUne 2 weekend

    where would you start/stop?

    someone should pick a weekend, make google doc, and work out some details of what and where... it would make it easier to plan

    Someone familiar with the park and the trails. (not me)

    June 7-9th will be the next available weekend for me to do a group HnH. I plan to do some camping with the kids for next month. Then the following dates im available for, June 21st-23rd, July 5th-7th, July 19th-21st.

    I plan to do the Three Ridges Hike this summer or fall and probably the Hike krshome mentioned. There is another trail in West VA that WV mentioned to me but forget the name of it...
