Route along the Appalachian Trail, passing through the state of Virginia (United States), in a south-north direction, from the crossroads of the trail with US-60, Lexington Turnpike, on the spot known as Long Mountain Wayside, up to the Seeley-Woodworth Shelter.

The stage corresponds to the layout of sections 19 and 18.2, according to the official distribution of sections of the TA in the state of Virginia, and runs entirely inside the George Washington and Jefferson National Forest.

The first four and a half kilometers of travel, approximately (about 3 miles), are a continuous and steep climb up the slope leading to Bald Knob (4,059 feet). In some sections the path forms a zigzag, alternating areas rung with stone. The climb is not particularly hard, nor difficult, but it is long.
