This is a 13.4 mile hke on the AT.
This hike will be mostly on the Roan Massif, a chain of high peaks in eastern Tennessee. The hike will meander along the Tennessee/North Carolina border... Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:
The meeting place for this hike will be the Hardee's restaurant in Erwin, Tennessee. The address for the Hardee's is 1237 North Main Avenue, Erwin, Tenn. 37650. The phone number for he Hardee's is (423) 743-5050.
We will be leaving the Hardee's at 7:30 AM sharp for the trailheads. Be sure to arrive earlier for directions and breakfast.
The weather turned challenging for us on this 15 mile AT hike. 11 of the 15 miles were hiked in a cloud.
As we hiked along the Roan Massif we were often blown of off the trail by gale force winds. The winds blew all day (with rain) until we got down into the forest during the last four miles. Definately a challange.
Three of us did this hike.
