Running

I ran a 3 mile section out and back starting at Rockfish gap. It was a great run. There is a lot of elevation change to the trail. So it is not a long climb one way. There are a number of creek crossings that keep it interesting.

Hiking

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.

First to Review

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.
