2014 Jim and Sandra Schmid and Willow hike on Appalachian Trail at Max Patch – NC

Sandra and I moved from Tallahassee, FL to Black Mountain, NC in May of 2014. In 2001 Sandra thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail and always wanted to get back to the mountains. Now here we are living where we used to vacation. Max Patch on the Appalachian Trail is only an hour and half away. We walked the 2.6 mile loop over and around Max Patch with our dog Willow.
