Overview

A two night backpack along the scenic Laurel River in the Laurel Fork North Wilderness WV. We will car camp the first night at the USDA's Laurel Fork Campground. Arrive anytime Friday evening. This point to point backpack will be an overnight backpack of about 10 miles. This is a scouting trip to explore a new area that is very remote. There are stream crossings and the trail is challenging to follow.

I have been leading backpacking trips for the Appalachian Mountain Club and the Adirondack Mountain Club since 1975. I enjoy taking the time to look at the scenery and have a relatively slow pace. I am patient with beginners and enjoy helping them learn new skills.
