Should be starting the first week in September to hike the long trail, coming off the PcT next week. Anyone know how the trail conditions have been this summer ? Water ?

The trail is a swamp. It has rained a lot this summer and continues to do so. The LT is noted for it's mud and this year looks to be really bad. There has been a lot of traffic and it has really chewed up the trail. A lot of rain and a lot of hikers is not a good combo for the trail. I've been thinking of doing another LT trip this fall myself, but I think I'll go somewhere else rather then add to the problem.
