Overview

Join us for a 3 day, 35 mile backpack through the southern section of Shenandoah National Park. Sections of this trek will include: AT, Big Run, Rockytop, Jones Run, Blackrock, Doyles River and Brown Mountain. You can expect several steep climbs with a cumulative elevation gain over 10,000'. This area has some of the best waterfalls in the park and several superb swimming holes; combined with backcountry camping, this will be a trek to remember! Participants will be required to submit a list of references if I have not backpacked with you in the past. NPS entrance and backcountry permit fee is required. Contact trip leader for detailed information and vetting purposes. Covid protocol in effect.
