MIDATLANTIC HIKES


Just fyi everyone, a great site (that I am sure many already use). That I used last summer and have been using this summer to explore new trip ideas. Really a great place to find all sorts of trips and reviews. The directions given are amazing.

I am going to do the sods circuit (16 miles) with some friends in a week and a half then maybe dolly sods north or flat rock/roaring plains later this summer. Anyone else have a summer excursion or two planned?

Do Flatrock Plains. 2,200 feet in 5 miles. More elevation gain than any other hiking trail in the MNF.

I'm sure I'll make a trip to the Sods before I start class in Aug. I'm also hoping to do a few day hikes around the Mon. Oh yeah, some fishing too!!!

I've never taken a pole up there. I've always heard that things up that way are too acidic to support a healthy trout population. The MNF has more places than anyone could fish all summer long though....

What kind did you get? I've been looking to get one. Just haven't found the one I want/one with a sweet enough deal.

If you can swing it, the Delorme PN-40 is AWESOME.

If its too much for ya, the Garmin Legend HCx is pretty sweet too. About half the price.

www.trails.com is pretty nice site as well.


EDIT:
I stand corrected, they are about the same price right now at wally world. Sweet deal.
