@ Keys Gap (Parking Area)
Please join Jared and Eric for a great out and back hike from Keys Gap to Buzzard Rocks on a less traveled portion of the AT. This hike is is a 7.7 mile hike (rated as moderate or a C on an A+-D scale). All of the 1000 ft elevation gain is in the first half of the hike. All downhill on the second half.
We will travel at a moderate pace 2-2.25 MPH and take a break at 3 miles to visit the beautiful David Lesser AT shelter before continuing to Buzzard Rocks, where we will rest and have lunch.
Please dress for the weather (layers) and bring lots of water (more than you think you will need) as well as snacks and food for lunch.
We will meet at the Keys Gap/Appalachian Trail Parking area at 9:30 am. The parking area is right past the Virginia/West Virginia line on US 9.
Please let us know if you have any questions and we will try to answer. Also, please see: https://www.hikingupward.com/OVH/KeysGapBuzzardRocks/
