Day 2: Hawk Mt. Shelter- Woody Gap

Woke up around 7am and had a nice poptart breakfast watching the sun rise. Started hiking around 8 and about an hour after was faced with 2 steep mountains back to back-(they were not particularly fun). Got to Gooch Mountain Shelter around 12 and was met with trail magic galore: hot dogs, m&ms, honey buns, and more, (we ate a lot.) Once we got to Gooch Gap we were met with even more trail magic, I snagged half a pack of thin mints and some rice crispies. Hiked another long 3.5 miles and got to Woody Gap where Fresh Grounds' Leapfrog Cafe provied us with free spaghetti an hotdogs, very awesome. A hard 12 mile day but well worth it.

  1. Have you heard how often they have "trail magic" and who usually does that? Local restaurants?
