Max Patch

Max Patch Trip Report (#13400)

DRP and I went up and over while on an overnighter (we did the AT segment Max Patch into Hot Springs). This was a most enjoyable trip. The view from the summit was, as always (at least when it's clear), excellent. The weather changed, however, and the next day we hiked along Bluff Mtn in fog, sleet/snow/rain, and goodly winds. Coming down into Hot Springs-- seeing the French Broad from above, glimpsing a westbound freight-- was excellent. I have spent many other times at Max Patch-- in the snow, in the sun, with and without dogs, alone and with friends, with and without women. It is one of my favorite places in the world and a great place to fly a kite.
