    Well, as much as I'd like to keep my local trails just to myself, that seems sort of selfish. And it's good to see them being used.

    I went and hiked a popular mountain at the southern end of the...

    I don't know that a lot of people tackle the AT without information. Maybe a few but a lot?

    The AT used to pass through all dry counties in NC. That made crossing into VA a special treat. Even today, outside of a couple of trail towns where beer is allowed, the counties are otherwise dry.

    Sounds like they still want you to stay home, especially those traveling from out of state. With the early heat wave, not a great time to be hiking anyway. Wait until the fall or next spring.

    There's a parking lot just past the C+O cannel section on the MD side of the river. You could park there and shuttle to PenMar.

    Sounds like your actually doing good. A typical hiking pace is 2 - 2.5 MPH with a couple of short breaks included in the average. There are times you will do 1 MPH and times when you can do 3 MPH....

    That's a $$$$$ area, bring lots of money. Sad to see Graymoor no longer allows hikers on the property, that was a good stop. Except I spent $100 on food at the near-by Appalachian Market in 2 days. ...

    500 miles +/- a few depending on wear conditions (rocky trail vs soil trail) is the most you can expect from any trail shoe. They simply aren't all that durable. That's the trade off of having a...

    Camping on a bald is sort of an option, but not a very good one. If a thunderstorm blows in overnight your in serious do-do.

    No doubt twisted an ankle on the knife edge or Wolfs Rocks. It was fun doing that section in the rain.

    What's even more interesting is the links to the other news in PA, dangerous place to be.
