Petites Gap to Sunset Field via AT and Horse Trail

7.3 miles, moderate yerrain
33 miles from Roanoke, $3.00 carpool fee
This hike will begin at Petites Gap on the AT and head south to the Blue Ridge Parkway crossing south of Thunder Ridge Shelter. We will walk the Parkway 100 yards or so south and head down a gated Forest Service Road to the Glenwood Horse Trail at Reeds Creek, then follow the Horse Trail south to the site of former Camp Kewanzee and follow an old road a short distance to Sunset Field. Along the AT from Petites Gap is the opportunity to view numerous early Spring wildflowers including thousands of Trilliums unless they bloom early this year. The car shuttle will be about 20 minutes.
