Description: Wednesday January 2 we will do a 8-9 mile hike along the AT from VA-7 and a few side excursions.  First we will take a trail out of the back of the parking area to the AT.  We'll go south on the AT to Bears Den Overlook.  Then we'll go north, cross VA-7 to Pigeon Hollow.  We'll do a short up & back in the hollow on an old road.  Continuing on the AT we'll pass Crescent Rock and descend to the Devil's Racecourse.  After Checking out Sand Spring we'll return on the AT.  On the way back,  for anyone interested, we can descend to the bottom of Crescent Rock to see the crescent.
