One day this trail will be done and when so will be a great asset for hikers. A 1000 mile hike for long distance hikers does not require the same time commitment as the AT or PCT. Perfect for hiking the summer between college semesters or school teachers, etc.
Many sections are great and much like the AT at one time are not all connected. However imagine being the only few....truely few who has the privledge in being the first ones to blaze a trail on the IAT. It would be like being the first ones to hike the AT or PCT. Just imagine!
Well said turtle fast, well said indeed.
