Stage 86

Tour through sections 5.1, 4 and 3 of the Appalachian Trail, passing through the state of Maryland (United States), going from south to north, always along the ridge of South Mountain, from mile AT 1038.80 to 1,054.50, measured from Springer, Georgia.

The stage begins crossing several historical places of the American civil war, beginning by the Reno Monument, in Fox Gap, that commemorates the place in which the unionist general Jesse Lee Reno and the confederate Samuel Garland Jr. passed away in the battle of South Mountain .

At a short distance, we find the Washington Monument State Park, with a service area, and after a short but steep climb, we reach the Washington Monument, built in 1827 in honor of George Washington, in the form of a circular tower with a viewpoint in the superior, which is accessed by an internal staircase. The place also offers beautiful views.

The trail continues, crossing a portion of Greenbrier State Park, reaching shortly after the small hill of Pine Knob.

    Muchas gracias por tu comentario y por tu apoyo, Ignacio.
    Efectivamente, el sendero de los Apalaches es un recorrido espectacular y único. Muy recomendable para cualquier senderista, y tiene una infraestructura de apoyo y un mantenimiento envidiables.
    Espero poder concluirlo en todo su trazado, de 3.500 km., y poder colgar en wikiloc todas las etapas.
