If you were going to hike a section of the AT next week, what section would you do? And why do you choose it? 😀

Some where the weather isn't going to be insane. That some where could be hard to find.

That is the truth! I have changed my mind 3 times now. Need to decide before the weekend.

NJ/NY. Seriously, it's actually a pretty nice stretch.

I would do my best to wait for May to do a section :) how ever I am doing my first section of the year st pattys day weekend so we will alllll hope for the best

OP is stating next week......So why would NJ/ NY be a recommendable option when they are in the midst of a massive snow storm?

I'd go south from Troutville,VA to the VA/TN border, or as far as one can make it. Tinker cliffs, McAfee Knob, Dragon's Tooth, Dismal falls, and if you've got lots of time, Grayson Highlands (ponies?!). Weather forecast isn't too shabby either...

Yes, we do have a very nice - and challenging - section. But right now it's under so much snow and melting snow it's kinda tough to find.

Yeah, that was stupid advice. I was reading "next week" in the rhetorical, not literal sense.
