What a fun hike!

Warm up on Jones Gap with a steady ascend for about 2 miles, hop back and forth across the creek and then head up the mountain on Coldspring Branch (breaking a bit of sweat here!) only to end up on your backside in certain places making your way back down on Bill Kimball! After that it's all downhill back to the parking lot!
We met about 10-12 people, the majority of them on Jones Gap, 3 on Coldspring Branch, and none on Bill Kimball.
