This is a beautiful out and back hike approximately 8.5 mile hike with 1750 elevation gain. That puts the rating only .25 off from an A level.

This hike is basically up then back down. Using the Pass Mountain trail and then the AT.

We will meet at Centreville Park and Ride

Parking Fee: Free

Carpool Fee: $4.00

Trail condition: Well maintained.

Duration: About 4 hours plus 1/2 hour for lunch.

We will have lunch at the top on some rocks unless the wind or weather is bad in which case we can stop at the pass mountain shelter to eat. Its about 1.5 miles from the top so we would hit it on the way back down. Bring plenty of water and snacks. Please pack a pair of micro spikes in your bag in case we hit any ice. Even if it has not recently been too cold or rainy you never know in the mountains and I prefer all hikers have spikes of some kind from December February!

Layer properly!
