    If I understand correctly, the one issue before the S.C. revolves around whether the AT is a “right of way” or actual park land in the location the NFS permitted.

    If just the former, then...

    Not the ATC’s call.

    They administer the Trail, which was created and defined by an act of Congress. The AT is about the land (as will be argued in the Supreme Court on Monday, not about...

    Perhaps (probably).

    At the same time, the typical length of time to complete an AT thru hike also went WAY up (right?).

    One of the hardest parts of thru hiking is hitting the trail with a fully replenished supply of food pack after a zero day.

    So to make up for the heavier gear in days of yore, hikers carried...

    Good to hear that.

    Has the ATC shared how much (if any) of the operational cost will be born by the Conservancy?

    At a minimum, I would think ATC might need to add a few more employees to the...

    The continuity of the AT matters — a great deal.

    Hikers have the ability to walk around the obstacle now.

    Issue is that this option is not all that safe.

    A yellow blaze is when you get in a motor vehicle to advance down the AT.

    Walking around an impassable/closed section is not a “yellow blaze” even if you do so on a roadway.

    That can be done as...

    Road walks were the norm for decades — I recall taking one that was 20 miles long.

    Hikers are traveling over the AT as it crosses the Kennebec River— even if they are in canoe.

    So no party has taken the lead on rebuilding the bridge yet?

    If so, the ATC needs to get moving on a re-route now.

    Having an incomplete Trail is not acceptable, and is dangerous!
