I want to take my granddaughter hiking on the AT. She is almost 9 and talks about nothing else but US hiking TOGETHER on the AT.("Thank you" to the National Geographic documentary on NetFlix) We have already hike together twice on the Neusiok Trail (21 miles) here in NC and it is almost completely flat. Can anyone give me their opinion of the area just south of Harper's Ferry?
I'm considering getting on the trail at US 50 in Paris, VA and hiking the 33 miles to the AT Conservancy. She wants to get her picture taken. I'm figuring on 4 days-3 nights. Can anyone give me first hand account of this area? Would we need more/fewer days? How would the weather be mid April? Any better ideas?

thanks,
Mimi

You may want to check out whiteblaze.net, that is a forum devoted to the AT, might have more luck there.
