Im wanting to make it to trail days during my hike this summer. Was wondering how long it took people to hike from Springer to Damascus?

If you leave Springer on April 1st, and travel at a "reasonable" pace, you will likely get the TD just as it starts, or be real close.

38 days. That's just over 12 mi/day including zeros--a very average pace. I say that based on the AT mileage article (http://www.whiteblaze.net/forum/content.php?44) and my own personal experience of seeing many of the same people over and over again that entire time (i.e. I wasn't getting ahead of the pack or falling behind). Of course, your mileage may vary.

I started April 3 and walked into Damascus the Wednesday before Trail Days, then stuck around.
