Overview

Join us in celebrating AT Vista 2021 on a nice 13 mile loop hike in the woods, past a lake and old beaver ponds to lovely Tillman Ravine in Stokes State Forest where we'll eat lunch by a cool waterfall. On the way back, we will climb the ridge to the Appalachian Trail past the recently built Brink shelter and walk northbound where we'll have beautiful views of Culver Lake. About 700' of elevation gain, and about 500' of elevation loss. Bring lunch, plenty of water, and dress for the weather (plenty of sun exposure on the ridge). There will be a necessary, but short car shuttle. AMC car shuttle protocol will be followed. There is no public transportation access for this hike. Contact leader with questions (gbernet@ptd.net). Only confirmed participants may attend this event. Participants need to register on activities.outdoors.org and complete the online COVID waiver. All participants need to carry face coverings (masks) from the start to the finish of the activity. MASKS WILL BE REQUIRED TO BE WORN DURING CAR SHUTTLE and any other times when physical distancing is not possible. All participants should have hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
