We will hike up toward Springer Mtn. to BMT and follow White Diamond Shaped blazed trail. This hike is very different from hiking in the Spring or Summer. When I firsted hiked the trail there was a dusting of snow and it was a sight to see. You will see things on the trail that you did not know where there. Since all the leaves on the trees are gone. We will hike about 4.5 miles to Three Forks where it meets the Appalacation Trail and turn Left and go to Stover Creek Shelter for our lunch break. After lunch we will follow the A T White Rectangular Blazes for approximately 3 miles to the parking lot.
