View Full Version : Hammocks on MST?

How difficult is it to find hammock spots on the Eastern part of the trail towards the end (ie beach areas?)

The areas I've been on, particularly Ocracoke Island, are all beach campsites. You'll want a tent for that section. Get your hammock once you take the ferry back to the mainland.

I did Jockeys Ridge to New Bern in March and I don't recall any good hammock spots the entire way. Maybe while stealth camping a few places but I'd have to say that a tent or tarp would be much more useful. Not sure about the rest of the trail but I plan on being out there again in 2 weeks (chilling in Belgium at the moment;)) . Happy Trails...
