Overview

This route provides a pleasant but rugged day trip along the Appalachian Trail from the Fox Gap trailhead to the Columbia Gas Pipeline then back.

Runner Notes

A great option for a short run along the AT.

Description

Though pleasant in its own right, this section of the AT is ideal for gear evaluation in order to prepare runners for upcoming extended trips along the Appalachian Trail (AT) or similar long distance trails. The terrain offers a variety of terrain, from easy to difficult sections within short lengths so that a runner can assess if the gear that they're planning to take on the AT is suitable for a longer outing. The trail also has sections where open areas are available for pauses, adjustments, or stopping to take in vistas.
