    North from Damascus will put you through Mt Rodgers & Grayson Highlandlands with the wild ponies. Another great streach is Pearisburg northbound. You would hit the VA Tripple Crown; Dragons Tooth, MaCafee Knob & Tinkers Cliff.

    Omg thank you all for the great suggestions! Sounds like there are several hikes that are truly favorites. I can't wait to sit down and take the time to check into each of these. Any more suggestions I am still open! So excited!

    while baseball would have you believe opening day is just about a week away on march 28; that is not the case. "opening day" for the seattle mariners and oakland athletics actually started today -- well, actually in the middle of the night (2:30 am on…

    I've done the north part of the triple crown section (but didn't get past MacAfee Knob). I especially enjoyed the two ridges south of Dragon's Tooth. I hauled water up so I could dry camp in the rocks on Sinking Creek Mtn. Best campsite ever. Also did…

    I turned 70 last month, I thank my God for the great health he has given me, which I by no means deserve, still hiking, biking and paddling...but it's slowing down, started feeling my age at 68.
