    Thumbs up VIDEO Trip Report - Shining Rock Wildnerness / Pisgah National Forest - 4-day loop



    Enjoy the sights & sounds from 2 buddies out on a hammock backpacking adventure in the Shining Rock Wilderness & Sam Knob area of Pisgah National Forest, North Carolina! We did this trip in late spring and covered around 42 miles, including the northern half of the Art Loeb Trail, due to some side trails and wrong turns. The weather was great for us the whole time and we didn't have any problems finding water.

    For shelter I used my Simply Light Designs Trail Lair hammock and Trail Haven tarp and insulation was the Enlightened Equipment Revolt 40 & Enigma 40 (both synthetic). Gear link: https://lighterpack.com/r/8e4r9f

    I also have a shorter highlights version if you don't want all the detail:

    Would love any feedback on the video, working on improving.


    Thanks for watching!
