|"Gathland State Park was once the mountain home of George Alfred Townsend, a Civil War journalist. It is the site of a unique collection of buildings and structures that he designed and constructed, some of which have been restored. A large, stone monument dedicated to war correspondents is an outstanding attraction at this day use park." We will be hiking a 10 mile round trip on the Appalachian Trail with an elevation of roughly 1600' , therefore the pace will be fairly quick to be finished in 3-4 hrs. |
