View Full Version : Anyone headed NOBO in mid April?

I'm planning on heading NOBO from Springer in mid April but haven't quite locked down a start date yet. Just trying to get an idea of how many others might be starting at that time.

Check this out if you're wondering more about numbers of starters each day.


Also, be sure to register your own hike too. :)

Go to the ATC web site and look at the registration graph. That will give you a low ball number of how many to expect on a given day. Mid April actually looks fairly quiet.

In addition to ATC's graphs and as Puddlefish mentioned (and linked to), WhiteBlaze has 49 hikers planning to start in mid April. Send some PM's to those who might be starting when you are.

Good Luck and Have Fun!

See you on the trail,

I'll be on the trail starting April 24. Not quite mid April, but I know there are a handful of posters here who have similar intentions. Hope to see you up there!

That's funny! Better later in the spring than earlier, anyways, I'd think.
