View Full Version : ease of hiking?

Well, I'm posting for two reasons: one, and I am not proud of this, is I thought it would be cool to start the first thread in this new forums section; and two, I really am curious about this.
Ok, so here is the question. This is to people who have hiked (either thru-hiked, or long sections) both the PCT and the AT. I've heard that the PCT is a lot easier hiking than the AT as far as grade and trail condition. To what extent is this the case. I've thru-hiked the AT and was planning a PCT hike for next year and was just wondering what kind of mileage I could expect to make on the PCT. Thanks in advance.
