Raven Rock Shelter in Maryland,
WV United States
A 4 mile one night out and back backpack on the Appalachian Trail in Maryland from the Route 491 Trailhead (Raven Rock Road) north to the Raven Rock Shelter camping area. We will meet Friday night at a warm place to check gear and get prepared for the Saturday morning start on the trail. The climb to the shelter is 600' elevation gain in 8/10th of one mile. After we set up camp an out and back day hike further north on the AT will be done to keep warm and to practice heat and moisture management when hiking. Families are welcome on this backpack. Space is limited so register early. The pace will be slow to allow time to enjoy the outdoors. Depending on the weather conditions, winter gear and microspikes may be required. Trip is suitable for 3 season backpackers who want to ease in to winter camping. Leaders will take the time to assist beginners in the activity.
Meet at a warm location to be determined near the starting point on Friday evening to get organized.
