    If it is all downhill after 40... Trust me, after 50 there is a cliff ! The trick is just being too stupid to let it stop you. appalachiantrailcafe.net/index…20b4b7aab532bb023d5d4f2a0

    Here's some more pics of the hike. You can see my modified Trailstar. The field pictures are from Hog Camp Gap, a real nice camping spot with a spring. The good view shots are on top of Spy Rock which is on a short spur trail from the AT near the Priest.…

    Bennington > Killington VT is another great moderate sections with plenty of alpine ponds & views. Also easy & cheap public transport for a section hike.

    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.
