 McAfee Knob is one of the most photographed spots on the Appalachian Trail and a bucket list item for hikers around the world. Beyond that we’ll actually be taking in the “Triple Crown” that includes McAfee Knob, Tinker Cliff and Dragon’s Tooth in this AT trip to Central Virginia 

We will start on Friday afternoon with a stay along the way in Beckley WV.  A short ways along from there, our first hike will be the Dragon’s Tooth, a unique geologic feature that consists of Tuscarora quartzite spires which outcrop on the top of Cove Mountain. Then we’ll stay in Daleville VA before we start a 21 mile hike on the Appalachian Trail.  Along the way we will view the Tinker Cliff, stay in two AT shelters and have plenty of time to take in the scenery get all our pictures of the Blue Ridge Mountains when we arrive at the McAfee Knob.  The trip is planned from Friday to Tuesday with hopes of avoiding the hiker crowds in the shelters over the week-end.  Surely the fall colors will also be part of our trail delight. 

The trip price includes two nights’ hotel lodging with breakfasts, two trail breakfasts, two trail dinners, shuttles, and transportation in the club van.  In preparation for the trip a couple of day hikes and a possible overnight hike will be arranged.
