What better way to spend your Friday evening than outside (but also technically inside??). We’ve both been wanting a good backpacking trip, and now that it’s getting cold what better way to do so then sleeping in a CABINNN!!??? Corbin cabin is owned and taken care of by the PATC (Potomac Appalachian Trail Club), but originally belonged to a moonshiner (oooo). The PATC also maintains our section of the AT!! The first day, we’ll hike about 7 miles, get to our cozy corbin cabin, and have din. The next day, we’ll wake up and finish the loop (about 6 miles) Since we’ll be “glamping”, this is a pretty beginner backpacking trip, but make sure you have moderate hiking experience cuz we’ll be covering decent mileage and elevation gain. 😎

Read more about the cabin and its amenities here: https://www.patc.net/PATC/Cabins/Individual_Cabins/Corbin.aspx

We’ll be doing a combo of these two trails:

We want to take 10 people to get reimbursed for the cabin rental cost – SO IF YOU’RE A DRIVER SIGN UP!!! Drivers will get priority off the waitlist and reimbursed for gas + 50% tip. We also need some Shenandoah National Park passes – so you will get priority if you have one!

1 pm: Meet at Echols
2 pm: Get to trailhead and start hiking (~7 miles) (estimated hiking time 3hours)
5 pm: Get to cabin
