Mt. Rogers Spring Backpacking Trip

Have you ever wanted to summit a mountain, see wild ponies or just live out of a backpack for a weekend. Well this trip is perfect for you! Come spend the weekend of April 18-20th, traveling along what some people say is the best part of the famous Appalachian Trail. We will travel light and cover short distances to be able to accommodate moderate skill level of hikers. All you need to participate is a sturdy pair of boots and the Outdoor Pursuits Staff can help you with the rest! We will have the chance to summit Mt. Rogers sometime early afternoon on Saturday then continue our hiking along the Wilburn ridge having the chance to take in the breath taking views of the beautiful state of Virginia. Lots of good times and memories to be made. This trip is the finishing project for Mark Hofmeister's internship. So come enjoy with me my final project for my degree! Hope to see y'all there!
