Start: Hog Camp Gap/3 Springs Hostel
End: Punchbowl Shelter
Miles: 17.6 (+0.2 to shelter)
I took a slow start this morning, having breakfast with our hostel hosts and my friend before heading back to the trail by 8:30am.
I climbed up Bald Knob (4059′), passed by Brown Mountain Creek Shelter (1358′), went over Pedlar River Bridge (952′), climbed Rice Mountain (2166′), and ended my day at Punchbowl Shelter (2487′). I arrived around 5pm.
Tonight, I’m sharing the shelter with AT Wheeler, a retired, flip-flopping thru hiker from Michigan/Florida.
