Funny how that works. The last time I was there, I was so whipped from the downhill hike in that I was afraid the hike back up the trail might be too much for me (I was 52 or 53 at the time, and my pack was over 50lbs.) I considered taking the Jacks River Trail back to Dally Gap, instead of the Penitentiary Branch Trail. Did it anyway (after two nights), and felt good the whole way.

While we’re on the subject, heed ye this: No one should EVER take the Sugar Cove Trail.
