HIGHLIGHTS: This section of the Appalachian Trail covers the final eleven miles to Rockfish Gap where the Blue Ridge Parkway, I-64, and US 250 intersect near the town of Waynesboro. The Cedar Cliffs are a rock outcropping in this section that have excellent views to the west and look out over the Sherando Lake Valley. The Camel and I spent two days hiking this section and had plans to continue on for an entire week. Unfortunately, his knee blew out on Day 2, and we had to abandon our hike near the Blue Ridge Parkway at mile marker 9.6 where we hitched a ride back to our car.
