A beautiful out and back hike on the Appalachian Trail passing through fields, streams, forest, and the Jim and Molly Denton Shelter.

We will start at the small parking area where the Application Trail crosses Rt 55 in Linden, VA. We will go southward on the AT for 7 miles before turning around at Rt 522 and going back for an out-and-back distance of about 14 miles and about 3000 ft elevation gain.

This hike is only suitable for those who have recently completed a hike of similar length and elevation gain. We will hike at a ~ 2.5 - 3.0 mi/hr. pace - (fast).

***Meetup at Centreville Park and Ride to form carpools and then we drive to the trail-head. WE LEAVE AT 6:15AM so please arrive a few minutes earlier***

Trailhead parking at the AT intersection with Rt 55 in Linden.
