Route Climbed: Mt. Rogers summit trail/AT spur trail Date Climbed: July 28, 2002  Sucess!

Enjoyed this easy hike, mainly because I was able to do it with my father, who does not hike regularly and had never done any backcountry camping before. I would definately recommend this trip to any beginners out there who want to get taste of the Virginia highcountry, and a bit of the Appalachian trail to boot.

The views are beautiful and the high, rocky meadows reminded me of Scotland a bit... Wild ponies everywhere and very tame. Not crowded at all and awesome camping.

Bagged this one along my 1995 AT thru-hike. I don't remember anything about it...just that I visited the summit!
