It's around 830 miles of hiking. If you leave Hot Springs in early March and want to be done by early May, you'll be doing closer to 13 miles per day, not 15.

In other words, I think you'll be just fine.

I'm planning on hiking from Gatlinburg, TN to Harper's Ferry starting on March 24th. I need to be at Harper's Ferry by the 15th of May. I'd be happy to meet up if you'd like, and if you think it would meet your schedule. I'm a 27 year old male engineer/science type. Let me know...
