Ok this is VERY last minute but what the heck! I need to burn off some holiday pounds. Do you? If so, join me for this bit of a wander at Gold Branch.
I will be hiking a mixture of established trails and perhaps a bit of off-trail wandering as well. If you are adventurous and willing to explore a bit in the woods then join me for this last minute wander. Who know were we will go.
The current weather shows a window of no rain Wednesday morning. Of course that can change but for now it looks like an great excuse for a hike.
With the potential off trail bits I would not recommend this hike for beginners but if you have some good solid D2 experience you should be fine.
