    I'm sure the reasons for NOT doing the approach trail are many. I doubt "worry" is one of those reasons.

    I am not doing it mainly because I have already hike down the falls, up the falls, the entire approach trail to Springer, and the trail leading from the Approach to the Hike Inn and back to Amicalola Falls SP.

    Also, the AT starts at Springer. It really doesn't matter HOW one gets to Springer. The Approach trail mileage does not factor into the AT 2181 miles (or whatever it is this year)

    One term you will hear often on the trail, if you havent heard it already, is hike your own hike.
    Alice: This is impossible.
    The Mad Hatter: Only if you believe it is.

    Hey. I was planning on starting 3-1-17 and still might but was also thinking of 3-13-17 that's a Monday after the time change so it will be darker later. Either way you will meet TONS of people to hike with. I did 4 days Springer to Neels Gap in April. 1st to the 4th. I started around 2pm and I was hiker 32 leaving that day thru the parking lot. Mountain Squid was there taking count. I also did Neels Gap to Fontana this June. I never spent a night alone. There are tons of people hiking all the time. But hey maybe see ya on the trail. I'll know more of a set date as it gets closer.

    I would like all who hike the AT to think about joining the ATC, they help make our dreams come true! It's a great way to thank them. Disclosure: I have no affiliation with them other than being a member.

    I agree. Even if it is $10.00. A great cause.
