Day #18 – Back on the trail…

Left Waynesboro about noon today and hiked south to the Paul Wilfe shelter.  It was only 5.1 miles, so it was an easy day.  Tomorrow I will tackle Humpback Mountain and then try to cover some more distance before I get to The Priest.  I’m a little worried about the climb there.  It’s 3,200 ft over 4 miles. Yikes!  It will be one of the major climbs of the trek.

  • Paul Wolfe Shelter and privy.    
  • Switchback.  (I’ve seen a few.)  
  • Dinner on the trail.
