I'm planning a thru hike of the AT this year, however, as a practice run, in 2 weeks I am planning on doing the Monadnock-Sunapee-Greenway Trail. Has anyone else thru-hiked this trail? I was originally planning to spend 4 days on the Monadnock Metacomet Trail, but it seems like it would be very difficult due to mud, mud, mud, and oh yeah... no shelters or designated campsights! Now not that I'm not expecting to tromp through the mud on the MSGT, but there are 2 or 3 lean-to's and some established campsites, so at least I'm not camping out in a graveyard. Does anyone have any other 4-5 day trails semi-nearby (within 1 + 1/2 hrs) the coast in NE? Preferable in MA, RI, Southern NH... I think ME will still be cold and muddy at this time of the year.
see you on the trail!
