Write Up:
Cheryl, Doug and I met at the carpool, departed and got to the trailhead by 10:00. Cindy, Tara, and Jeff were waiting for us when we arrived. Jeff signed the MOC waiver and we were on our way, along with our 2 furry companions, Sacha and Cooper. We all set a pretty brisk pace. We hiked down to the Big Devil Stairs overlook and ran into a former MOC member Sarven, who I did the same hike with last year. We broke for lunch about 1:00 at the Gravel Springs Hut. I treated Cheryl for some blisters with some moleskin. After lunch we got on the AT and hiked the remaining 6 miles back to the cars. We got back about 4:30. After the hike, Cheryl, Cindy, Doug and I had dinner in town, then we went back to the carpool. Weather was great all day with no rain and plenty of sunshine.
