First view point of the day is a fine one south over the valley.
There have been some cold nights recently as indicated by patches of ice in shaded areas.
The trail emerges at Appalachian Road, an old woods road, which climbs steadily to the east before re entering the woods.
This hike really took me by surprise and was much more strenuous than I expected. Hiked 6.4 miles RT over 4 peaks with many steep ups and downs on a carpet of leaves. Can't complain about the fantastic November weather we have been blessed with.
