Hiking Old Rag

I hiked Old Rag on Sunday. I have been anxious about this hike because there is so much build up online about how tough it is and how exhausted you’ll be.

Harper’s Ferry – Loudoun Heights

After leaving the hotel I had planned out a loop hike of the Long Pond Trail, part of the Great Notch Trail, and part of Gilley trail. I thought this would take all day so I packed a lunch. I did 5.5 miles inContinue reading “Acadia National Park – Day 4”
