My nine year old daughter and I would like to go on a 3 day 2 night hiking adventure in the Roan Highlands area of the Appalachian Trail. Is 5 miles a day a reasonable goal?
If any of you lovely folks have done something similar, could you share a great starting and ending point? We have other family that will drop us at the trail and pick us up, so that's no concern. We have been car camping a few times and on many many day hikes, but this will be our first multiple night, overnight backpacking trip. This will be early June. Thank you!
