    I'm not saying a random lion couldn't wander into the area, but if there were any sort of established population I would assume one would have turned up dead on a road by now. Lots of reports/videos...

    I've left a car at thunder rock for 4 days two different times while doing sections on the BMT. No problems at all, I feel safe leaving my car there.

    Just a side note...I camped at Trout Creek when I went through there, and only one car drove down the road (dirt) in the 12 or so hours I was there. Obviously I may have just caught it on a good...

    Art Loeb Trail

    For those of you who have hiked it, would you recommend I hike it south to north (Davidson campground to Daniel Boone), or vice versa? And if you feel like it, why?

    Same here, I even use bright orange underquilts so I can be visible when I'm in my hammock.

    Agreed. Get off of I-40 on exit 7 (I think it's Harmons Den Rd or something like that?), and within the first mile before you really start up the mountain there are plenty of spots along the stream...

    I just finished that section this past weekend, going north from Duncannon to the Mohican Outdoor Center in NJ. It took me 9 days to do that stretch, about 150 miles. I tend to average about 16...

    No worries, I don't remember there being much open space in that section. Certainly not anywhere close to the amount of sun you get a little farther north cutting across the Cumberland Valley in PA.

    I camped next to Trout Creek south of Pickle Branch when I went through there, and only a couple of cars came down the dirt road it crosses so it wasn't bad. Here's a pic of where I camped, right...

    I don't know, the guys in A Walk in the Woods fell off a cliff somewhere in the south and surely would have died had they not landed on a fortuitous ledge below. So you need to look out for that...
