    Just wanted to say thanks for this recommendation! Carl shuttled me from NY 17 to DWG last weekend. He was very dependable and gave me a great rate.

    Thanks everyone! Good to know that the rest of NY, CT, and MA aren't like that. I bet even the part of NY I hiked would have been more fun if the rocks hadn't been wet. There was just enough rain to...

    Southern New York - Woah!

    Just finished a section hike from Port Clinton, PA to I-87 in New York (southern end of Harriman State Park). From what I'd read I thought the rocks would be worst in PA, then things would get a bit...

    I just hiked through there last week. The park office is indeed closed, but I think the parking lot is open. It is about 1/4 mile east on NJ 23 and there is a blue blaze that takes you from the...

    I've still got another 6 years or so left to finish the AT, but I've already started thinking about what could come next.

    The NC MST is right in my backyard and I'm already on my third time...

    15 mpd, or about 100 mpw is about the max I can sustain. I've had a few 18 mile days, but they always involve pushing through fatigue at the end of the day, followed by lower mileage the next day.

    Yeah, I do day hikes in the summer but avoid backpacking for that very reason. I can hike faster without a pack and get 10-12 miles in before noon, then head home for lunch and an afternoon in the...

    I did the BMT section through the Smokies several years ago (before they started charging to camp overnight). You're right, it's odd that the trail just ends at Big Creek Campground. On the other...

    You can "stealth camp" pretty much anywhere on that section, except in Shenandoah NP. Water shouldn't be an issue.

    My recommendation: If you only need to do Harper's Ferry to Front Royal, just...

    Sometimes it simply comes down to knowing the trails in your local area. For example, I live in the Raleigh-Durham metro area with nearly 2 million people. I know the trails at the park near my house...

    Don't know if this would work for you or not, but there's the Loft Mtn Wayside and a reservable PATC cabin (Doyle's River) about halfway between Lewis Mtn and Waynesboro.

    I've been worried that these kinds of things would start happening given the larger number of aspiring thru-hikers starting earlier and earlier in the year.

    If you're not well prepared,...

    My vote is #2. New England will be quite muddy and buggy at that time (or so I've heard), and #1 will put you right in the middle of the thru-hiker bubble. Springer to 19E (slightly north of...

    *Disclaimer* I haven't done the northernmost 75 miles of PA yet, which many people say is the worst part of the rocks.

    However, I'd argue that starting in Harper's Ferry and going north is a good...
