This hike starts at a closed gate fire road where we park the cars in a wide 4 way remote gravel road intersection. Backpack in the roughly 1/2 mile and explore the fire tower which already has a seating area and fire pit built among the pines. You will see distant views of "High Rock" as you walk. 

From this hang out spot there is a short side trail connecting to the Appalachian Trail where we can do a 5 mile out-and-back hike from here to Chimney Rock (PA), an excellent view!

Just down from the fire tower is a very cool pine forest with seats and fire pit already set up. Lots of wide open, flat & comfy spots to spread out tents with social distancing in mind!

Plenty of gated off fire trails to bike or hike and explore!  This is a very remote area. We could potentially see 0-4 people.
