    Looks to me that once you cross the bridge into New Brunswick, you need to hitch a ride up to the where the trail starts again. I don't think you want to try walking there. Good Luck!

    Looks to me there is one ferry from Newfoundland to Nova Scotia. And another which goes to Labrador, but I don't think you'd want to go there. Why you would want to go to PEI is beyond me, there is...

    May is still pretty early, but it depends on when in May. Big difference between May 1 and May 30. You will probably need a permit to do that in the park.

    You could walk. It's 1.1 miles from the Arch to the Lodge. A very steep 1.1 miles, with 604 rock steps up along the falls. I've never bothered, I just leave from the lodge.

    Use the phone as you would on the trail for 10 days. That will give you a good idea of exactly how much power you actually need. 10K would enough for me.

    One evening I set up my tent in the general shelter area. Since it was raining and I was lazy, I put my food bag on the ground just outside my tent. Sure enough, mice got into it. Had I put it in my...

    I tried the hammock idea. In practice it didn't work very well as a chair. Hard to beat a chair you can just unfold and plop down most anywhere. Not that I ever carried a chair, but I can see the...

    Long pants help. If I have to go to shorts, that's when I have to start stopping every 1/2 mile to dislodge something from my shoe.

    Tall gaiters for rainy/muddy season (April/May), you'll stay a lot cleaner. Low riders for summer to keep the trail duff out of your shoes.

    Not too bad, could have been a lot worse. The hole I saw burnt into the floor of a shelter was 4 feet across. They were probably trying to take down the whole place.

    Saw this in a shelter in late 80's. Big hole burnt into the middle of the floor. I forget exactly where it was. I seem to remember there was another one too, maybe not as bad.
