In 2014 Xtreme Hikers stayed at the picturesque Wintergreen Resort in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, and tackled a stretch of 23 miles along the famed Old Appalachian Trail. The resort and hike offered spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Rockfish and Shenandoah Valleys. Fabulous weather sealed the deal on a great weekend.
Hikers set out in the dark and watched the sun rise as they followed resort trails that wound around two mountain peaks that make up the Wintergreen Resort. The second half of the hike took our crew down the mountain and into the valley, where we crossed the finish line at Devils Backbone Brewery. (Thanks to Devils Backbone for providing food, drinks and a great venue to swap stories and rest our feet!)
