    Don't worry, your first "If I fall here I will die" moment will occur about half way up Kathadin on your very first day :) After that, everything else will look tame. But yea, there are a lot of...

    Seg 4+5 are in the Lost Creek wilderness where bikes are not allowed. There's a 71 mile bike detour around these sections, which I suppose could be used for a loop. Could be an interesting walk back...

    An AMC shuttle driver moonlights after hours doing private shuttles. At least he was last year. Bill at mtnmediav@gmail.com

    Waynesboro to Daleville would be the next leg. This is the part of Virginia which is defiantly not flat. It's about as close to being wilderness as you'll find in the mid Atlantic states and my...

    I'd say fly to Boston and hike the Whites or the Long Trail. Only down side is a high chance of rain all of early next week. And of course, the black flies are out in force now. Er, never mind.

    You might occasionally need your hands to hold onto to rocks and roots as you go up (or down, often backwards) but it's still mostly all leg work. The main trick is to learn when to use your poles...

    Watch the video One Arm linked. That thru hiker Hawk got lost and wandered down a logging cut for a mile. And here's a guy who apparently has hiked through here before and as been hiking for over 100...

    looks to me they tried to find "an easier" way down - straight down the chute.

    1) you look for them painted on trees - and occasionally on rocks if there are no trees. If taking the AT from Shelburne, the blazes will become very sparse after the first mile or so. You will just...

    Peakbagger, I'll have to print out your directions to the Mahoosuc trail so I don't get lost again next time I try to go that way!

    Sorry to say, the forecast is for rain Wens thru Sunday next week. Better hope the forecast is wrong. A lot of that trail is a car wash when the trees are wet.

    Don't worry, they will be back as soon as it warms up again this week.

    It's a short walk from the Mt Madison to the RR trestle, which is used to cross the river with a foot bridge built into the lower level. You can't miss it. It's a bit confusing on how to get to the...

    Lots of bugs and try not to slip off any of the bog bridge puncheons or you could go knee deep into the mud.
    You'll probably see snow or ice in the notch, or at least the temp will drop by about 20...

    If you camp at shelter sites (and you should), they all have bear poles or bear boxes to store your food. Slowly, but surely, bear boxes are becoming standard equipment at all AT shelters.

    Okay, flying to Boston makes more sense. Gorham is about a 5 hour drive depending on traffic. Andover is another hour - hour and a half.

    Your best bet is to go to one of the hostels in Andover, they can shuttle you back - probably. It's a long drive, about an hour, so it will be pricy.

    As for getting there, that is a very rugged...

    Actually, if you don't see it listed in Guthook forget it. This time of year the poison ivy is everywhere and thorny bushes cover the ground. To say nothing of the increased risk of picking up a tick...

    Actually, the bus gets to Gorham at more like 9:30 since they never factor in the stop and go traffic leaving Boston at 4 PM. Weekends it's mostly on time. I've ridden this bus a lot.

    Hard telling. Maybe all the snow will have melted by then.

    If the weather co-operates, it could be fantastic. If not, well you know. My guess is winter is starting later then conventional wisdom...

    It got to 86 at my house this afternoon. A bit on the humid side too. But rain coming in for the weekend. Just in time for our first volunteer work trip on Star King Trail. :(

    Somehow you need to get yourself to Union Station in DC, then take the afternoon Amtrak train to HF. Leaves about 4 PM, arrives just after 5.
