Plan A is for Labor day weekend (5 days). Plan B the weekend after (4 days).
Right now my buddy can only get 2 vacation days. Which weekend will depend on if we can get rooms Labor Day weekend. If Labor Day weekend then we would probably arrive the Friday before Labor Day, go for a train ride and really start the ride on Saturday.
If the weekend after, then I would prefer to arrive on the 10th. We would start the tour right away. We would have to wait to Sunday on the return to do a train ride. If my buddy can get a 3rd day then that would change things completely. We would probably have to arrive on the 12th because I think the train stops running during the week after Labor Day.
You are welcome to ride with us.
Here are our plans.
Five Day Plan (most likely Labor Day weekend if we can get rooms)
Day 1 Drive to Cass, take train ride (possibly 4 hour train ride), stay over night in Cass.
Day 2 Cas to Malinton 25 miles
Day 3 Marlinton to Lewisburg 50 miles
Day 4 Lewisburg to Marlinton 50 miles
Day 5 Marlinton to Cas 25 miles, drive home
Four Day Plan
Day 1 Drive to Cass, leave car at trail head, ride 25 miles to Marlinton.
Day 2 Marlinton to Lewisburg 50 miles
Day 3 Lewisburg to Marlinton 50 miles
Day 4 Marlinton to Cass 25 miles, drive home
