    You are 100% correct that hikers were not a common sight in most of the GET trail towns. But far from reacting with alarm, strangers were so incredibly wonderful, offering up places to stay, often...

    Well yeah. We need the rocks in those six sections! The Standing Stone Trail tries, but it has yet to achieve the rockiness of the southern Mid State Trail. Needs more people piling rocks on it. ;)

    First, the GET is about 75% complete and is, in fact, more complete than the Appalachian Trail was when Earl Shaffer hiked it. True, the GET has a long way to go before it is deemed 100% finished -...

    I second Cookerhiker's statement. Where is ki0eh? He knows the rocks of the northern Tuscarora.

    Art Loeb water?

    Just talked to a ranger, but interested if anyone here knows about water sources on the Art Loeb this time of year. Is everything pretty dried up? Has anyone been out there in the last few weeks?
