Write Up:
While waiting for other group members to arrive, a few members of our hike assisted an AT volunteer with moving a structure that had been shifted. Once assembled, our hike began with the steep elevation gain of the AT, peaking at Chimney Rocks where we were rewarded with a wonderful view of the valley and reservoir (as well as a snack break). With the difficult portion over, we were able to hike at a good pace while enjoying the unseasonably warm weather (of 60 degrees) despite a brief rain shower. Towards the end of the hike we stopped briefly to enjoy Tumbling Run. Following the hike, 7 of us assembled at the Ott House for lunch and to continue our good time (and to laugh at all the silly things we did over the course of the day- such as hike with a fly down, or lock oneself in a bathroom). :)
