    This goes at the top of my list of things I'm most tired of reading about; people trying to impose ridiculous LNT standards on the AT that no one is ever going to take seriously. No hiking during or...

    You're not being daft all. Keep in mind that the ATC can only make a recommendation, they may not mandate.
    No one (except a Ranger perhaps) is going to give you a citation or remove you from the AT...

    Dolly Sods is easily one of the most spectacular and wonderful places on the east coast for backpacking. It's our go-to place for our spring hikes to avoid the crowds on the AT.

    No, actually that 500' rule has no applicability to hunting season or animals. It's more to discourage human animals from fouling the water but 200' for a camp site but 500' from water source still...

    You can't camp more than 200 ft from the trail but must be more than 500 ft from a water source? I'm sure that's vigorously...

    Agreed. HIGHLY unlikely he's on the AT. Especially now as we proceed into fall, and so many people looking at fall foliage, way too great of a chance to be spotted.

    :-? Thanks GoldenBear. Good gouge. Based on that information and my additional "research" it appears that my plan is indeed flawed.

    BlackCloud is 100% correct. ATC grossly exceeded their charter (they never had the authority) by attempting to close the entire AT because of COVID. COVID had no effect on the AT.
