To complete this hike, I highly recommend bringing snacks, 3 L of water, and your 10 essentials.

This hike is open to hikers of all skill levels. We’ll be hiking as a group, and nobody will be left behind or forgotten.

Any updates will be posted on the event thread via the pinned post, and I’ll update the event description if anything changes!

For those of you coming from the Virginia side, you may want to meet each other at the Wal-Mart in Woodstock, and carpool to the campground.
