We’ll meet Friday after work at the carpool location, drive to Wolf Gap Recreation Area, and car-camp. Saturday we’ll hike 11 miles on the Long Mountain Trail, Bucktail Trail, and Bucktrail Connector Trail, camping at Halfmoon Run. Sunday we’ll hike along the Halfmoon Trail, Tuscarora Pond Run Trail, and Mill Mountain Trail, completing the hike to Wolf Gap with a quick detour to the top of Big Schloss.|
