I know there’s already a Hightop hike going out on Sunday but sadly I have Sunday commitments and still wanna bop up this lovely mountain and enjoy the beautiful weather that’s heading our way this weekend. So, if you’re in the same boat, you’re in luck! There are two options for this trail, the 5.6 mile version and the ~3 mile version. We will be doing the quick and painless 3 mile version so we can all sleep in and still be back in time to do homework/darty/watch the Hoos beat ODU! It’s 1.5 miles up and 1.5 miles down with < 1,000 ft of elevation gain, so it'll be pretty moderate. Also my large cow-like dog will be in attendance as long as everyone's okay with it!

10:00 AM Meet at & depart from Echols (This is the old dorm that faces Gilmer and is closest to O Hill)
11:00 AM Get to the trailhead!
11:45 AM Summit that bad boi, eat lunch, hang
1:00 PM Back to the cars!
~2:00 PM Get gas, get back to Cville

Pls bring:
– ** $5 OR PARK PASS!!!!! This is SO important because the park will be poppin' on Saturday and the gate will DEFINITELY be checking for passes/charging the car fee. PLEASE COME PREPARED WITH FIVE DOLLARS in case your car does not have a park pass! **
– At least 1L of water
– Sturdy, comfortable hiking shoes
– Lunch/snacks

I need 1 more driver for this trip! As always, the club reimburses for gas and you get a 50% tip!
