    A week ago it was running just fine. It's always amazing to see a spring at the top of a mountain flowing with all this dry weather.

    I’m a few days from finishing my thru hike and have found water reports notoriously inaccurate for some reason. As I’m heading south I ask NOBO section hikers about water. It must come down to what...

    Stay at Mountain Harbor B&B and hostel just off the trail at 19E. They will shuttle you to Carver’s Gap. It’s an easy 15 mile hike back. They have THE best breakfast on the trail. And I’m not...

    It indicates the last section of finished trail that connected all parts of the AT. I walked by it earlier this year. Some people have mistakenly thought it was the original northern terminus.

    It’s dry. You need a scoop. Cut the bottom 4 inches out of a plastic water bottle. Scoop gently so you don’t silt up your water source.

    Many of the “reliable” sources are dry in this area and all the way north to SNP. This is making it difficult for sure. I have chosen hostels over camping a number of times in the past 2 weeks just...

    Four days ago I walked across this bridge in the dark before sunrise. It wasn’t taped off or blocked in any way. There was a sign on it saying Corners Creek Bridge is unsafe. I didn’t skip a step...

    The failure rate I saw through there for section hikers or new SOBOs was high. Train well. Quite a few people were surprised by the difficulty. The better your trail legs when you start the better...

    It can be anything at that time. Watch the weather forecast carefully and follow it daily up until the day you leave. Make last minute adjustments as required.

    Camped there night before last. Water is down to a trickle. The pool at the shelter is full of bugs and is muddy and easily silted up when disturbed. Walk upstream a bit. You can find a clean pool...

    Unless you are already in thru hiker shape you should arrange a food drop in the hundred mile. I met people using Shaw's who said it cost $80 to have your own food dropped. Some people tried to...

    So true. “Hard” is when the trail wrecks your body beyond what you can fully recover from during the night. You can discover this in NH and ME when hiking 8 to 12 hours daily. No single mountain or...

    Madison?? No. It's steep but the trail maintenance could not be better. You just walk up it.

    You won't know. People have vastly different hiking abilities out there. It's the hardest part of the entire trail. Consider going south instead and just ending where you end. If you do that you...
