We will start at the Woody Gap parking lot and hike north bound on the AT about 11 miles to Neels Gap. We will stop at the views at Big Ceder Mountain and Blood Mountain. Expect to have a sit down and enjoy the view break at these locations. We will visit Mountain Crossing for some snacks and a restroom break before we turn around hike southbound on the AT back to Woody Gap. On the way back, we will take the Freeman Trail, which skirts the sumit of Blood Mountain for a slight change of pace.
This hike will be about 21 miles and will have just over 6,000 of elevation gain and loss. If you have not recently completed some D5 or D6 hikes with the AOC, the leader will likely contact you to determine your abilities for this hike. The leader does reserve the right to remove anyone if warranted. If you are meeting us at the event - please be there ready to hike at 8:00 AM. If you plan to carpool, please be at the park and ride just off 985 located approximately here: 1671 Horizon Pkwy NE Parking.
