I have been planning to hike the first 100 miles of the LT since 2009. Unlucky me, I now have a full knee replacement since last April, thanks partly to 30 years of running.
My niece and I want to hike the trail this August and my biggest concern is will I be able to.
What can I expect as for as the layout of the trail, will there be any boulder hopping [ouch]? I don't mind ups and downs. I am slowly rehabilitating and am up to hiking 15 miles a week [5 days a week] with 7 months to go. I am still a little leary but rearing to go.
Any advice will be appreciated..........................JPJ
