This can be a challenging backpack along the “roller-coaster” section of the Appalachian Trail in Northern Virginia. Starting at the Snickers Gap Appalachian Trailhead, we will head towards Bear’s Den, where there is an expansive view to the west from the Bear’s Den Overlook.  We will then head south on the Appalachian Trail passing over several ridges on the way to the Sam Moore Shelter, where we will find a campsite. The return trip will be in the opposite direction. This trip is Saturday morning to Sunday afternoon.

All trip details including equipment list, meetup spot and driving directions will be provided by email the week before the trip. WWO has a limited amount of backpacking equipment to lend as a member benefit.
