Cross Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"The first 0.5 mile of this Appalachian Trail (A.T.) hike is for everybody (including those in wheelchairs), a universal access pathway over a view-laden meadow. The highlights come early as you trace the A.T. across the open fields of the old Osborne Farm. Here, far-reaching panoramas stretch north into Shady Valley and beyond into the Virginia highlands."
