|Elevation Profile - Day 3|
For the year, there was one more section of new miles on the trail, just to the south of our starting point on this trip. I completed it with the Roanoke Appalachian Trail Club a couple of weeks later. Link. As 2014 comes to a close, I have now completed over 500 miles of the A.T. in Virginia, including about 110 new miles this year alone - nearly all of them south of the New River. I now have only a little over 10% of the state's trail left. Completing those miles are high on the priority list for 2015.
