My husband and I are looking at doing a section hike starting at or around Big Meadows and heading north. We are going to be on the Trail for about 5 days and was wondering what advice we could get from people that have been there done that. Also, would like to know how to find out distances on the trail. Would help immensely if we knew how long each part of the trail we are hiking is. Any advice we can get would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
