Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.

Itinerary:

Join me on this mid-week D6 as I explore 2 mountain tops with big views.

We will meet at the Osage Overlook in North Carolina. Our hike starts with a 2 mile, 1000 foot ascent of Scaly Mountain. We will take a short break here while we take in the views. Back on the trail we go as a 2 mile descent serves as a warning to our hike back. Now we begin a 3 mile rolling ascent of Jones Knob. The views at the knob are awesome and it is here where we will enjoy our lunch. After lunch we will retrace our steps and earn our D6 with a delighful climb at the 10 mile mark.

This is a difficult, D6 event. Only experienced hikes will be allowed on this event.
