    Nicky McGovern completed Blue Ridge Trail

    This hike was very nice, but next time I'm going to do a little more research. This path is not as easy as some of the reviews would have you believe. It's great to walk in the summer because it is nearly completely covered in shade but it is uphill the entire way. For someone who is 6 months pregnant, it was a bit difficult, and I had to turn back at the halfway point. I imagine anyone who is in moderately good shape wouldn't have any problem with this hike, but someone who wasn't would do well by getting to the halfway point and turning back.

    I would have loved to do this hike before the baby bump, but now I can't wait to repeat it next year, maybe with the little one in tow. :-)
