|Heading south on the Shenandoah Mountain Trail.|
We reached our turnoff for the Georgia Camp Trail at 10:30, having traveled 1.3 miles. The group regrouped here, having spread out widely in this short section of trail. The Shenandoah Mountain Trail continues south for about 25 additional miles, and becomes a real trail (not just a roadbed) about another mile and a half south of this point. I took the trail portion a few months later.

We made it down to the Trailhead on U.S. 250 at about 1:30, about 3.5 hours after we started. Because we set up a car shuttle, this was one of the easier hikes I have taken in a while - mostly downhill!
