Great day in the gorge  Sucess!

Climbed from the Tablerock parking area and descended to Wolfpit. Camped at the Edge of Gap campsite near the summit. Great spot.

Great variety of springtime flowers!  Sucess!

This was my second time to hike to Shortoff. Both times were from the Table Rock lot. I should have checked here first I guess, for I, too, would like to find this pond!

I missed out on the pond  Sucess!

I hiked this mountain from the Wolf Pit Road trailhead to the highpoint and back this past Friday. But I had no idea it had a pond, I definately would have looked for that. This was an enjoyable hike, and very scenic. There are many overlooks of the linville gorge. It is 408 meters of total elevation from the trailhead to the highpoint, over a 5.5 km trail. It took me 4 hours out-and-back, with many stops for pictures and a long break near the highpoint.

What a great hike! My favorite place (so far) in the Linville Gorge Wilderness!
