Write Up:
We meet early Saturday Morning and We proceeded to Woody Gap to set up a shuttle and start our backpacking trip. We went to Springer Mountain to start our hike and hiked to Long Creek Falls to have lunch. From there we hiked to Horse Gap to setup camp.We hung our bear bag and decided to turn in early because the wind was so strong to have a camp fire. The wind was so strong I thought it was going to blow my tent away, but it didnt. We started early Sunday Morning toward Woody Gap. The hike up Sassafras Mountain was very strenuous. After we went up and down several mountains and a long hike we were glad to see Woody Gap. The weather got very warm about 11:00 and several layers of clothing has to go. If you did not make this trip you missed a long and good hike. Hope to see you on the trail soon.
