    How will coronavirus affect hiking this year?

    I was thinking that a nice long solo would be nice...and then the thought occurred to me that I don't really want to end up sick and alone in a tent in a remote area...nothing good comes from that.

    I do the Charlie's Bunion hike every few years. It's one of my kids favorites and they've been doing it since elementary school. I've never thought of it as difficult.

    I finally looked at my NatGeo map of the area last night. Cochran falls is shown just below the Len Foote Hike Inn. Looks like maybe a half mile from that trail as the crow flies. There is a trail...
  12. Need some feedback on my 2 night 3 day hike (GA)

    Whitley Gap shelter is a long walk from the AT although it is a nice, quiet one with a good spring. The last 1/2 mile down is steep and so makes for a steep start the next morning. If you take a...

    Q- hiking the southern end in fall

    Water is generally not a problem unless we've had real rain shortages...which given recent years, is always possible. Tank up as opportunities occur and you'll be fine.
