    If you are on facebook, you might see what people have to say if you ask them at Friends of the Cohos Trail:

    One issue with the Cohos trail that I haven't run into on other trails is that in the northern half, the trail makes use of snowmobile trails and other pre-existing trails which are not really built...

    I agree with peakbagger - unless we have some really freak weather, mud and bugs will be awful on the Cohos in early June. I did twice, starting in late July the first time. and then mid-August and...

    The Long Trail is getting increasingly popular. 10 years ago, the northern section felt remote and quiet. That isn't the case any more. Shelters that I once had all to myself in the summer are...

    Nice article! A few points of information on resupply: A bus will take you from the Inn at The Long Trail into Rutland so you don't have to hitch. Middlebury is another nice resupply town and...

    Cooker: I haven't been around White Blaze for a while, but was glad to see this thread. I enjoyed following your complete dissection of the LT this year. It was great to renew your acquaintance...

    I was through the LT around the same time and followed your journal entries for much of the way. Starting at Journey's End at noon on August 6th and reaching Maine Junction on the 17th (and the...

    It depends on what you want. A day hike of Camels Hump is a challenge and pretty great. But almost any section north of Brandon Gap would give you an interesting taste. There are enough trail...

    I was going to start on the 5th, but the forecast has moved me to the 6th. It's one thing to hit crap weather along the way, and another to start out in it:

    "Saturday. A chance of showers and...

    Thanks!

    I pretty much always take advantage of the LT Inn's hiker discount and send food ahead to be picked up there. I will contact you if in need, or if not, perhaps to invite you to come...

    Cookerhiker,

    I'll be headed out Saturday or Sunday this weekend. I've done between 17 to 22 days in the past and once again need to be back home after 3 weeks. I'm pretty obsessive about...

    I'm a bit of an LT addict, with 2 SOBOs and 2 NOBOs completed and and an attempt at a 3rd SOBO starting this weekend. For me, the area in the North does turn out to be much tougher and slower going...

    Cooker - I enjoyed meeting you when we were both doing the LT in '07. Have your plans firmed for this year? If you're NOBO in August, perhaps our paths will cross again.

    I was out just North of Stratton this w/e and there was more mud than is typical, but I've seen it worse.


    BTW: I'm planning to start on the 4th or 5th - still waiting on the weather to figure...

    I did it again this year. Almost as much rain as in 2009, but the trail is better able to handle water in many spots (still overwhelmingly swampy and mucky after rain in others).

    On comparisons to the Long Trail: I agree in terms of having better luck with a hammock. Otherwise, I find them quite different (based on LT X 4 and CT X 2). Being much earlier in it's...

    I just completed a SOBO hike of the Cohos a few days ago. I'd done it NOBO back in 2009. My logistics were pretty simple: I left my car at the Davis Path trailhead and when I finished I hitched...
