From Rockfish Gap I hiked to Mayo’s Homeplace and back to Rockfish Gap. Mild 50 degrees and light rain after first hour. Good moderate pace,with slippery spots.

I will be back to hopefully complete the full hike. I stopped off to grab a 5 mile portion to break up a drive to Powhatan from Staunton. Trail was in great shape for this dusk hike.
