Join me on this fun hike to the summit of Albert Mountain (5200'). Albert mountain is one of the southern most 5000 foot peaks in the eastern US and is easily acceable via the Applachian Trail. We will begin our hike at tha Rock Gap trailhead and hike sout for approximately 6 miles to reach the summit and looktout tower atop Albert. Elevation gain will be approximately 1500'. After a break for lunch, we will return down the same trail.
The pace will be moderate with breaks as conditions allow. In case of inclement weather (rain/snow) I will cancel/postpone the event.
I'll be bringing my 2 dogs. So, only one other dog will be allowed on the hike.
In case of inclement weather, I will cancel the hike.
