    I used to be a huge fan and user of SuperFeet green. But I found a much less expensive alternative (1/4 the price) that's just as good (perhaps better?) called Copper Fit Balance Insoles from...

    46267

    I saw this guy on the AT in GA and NC in 2017. It was working for him. He was in his 70's and section hiked the whole trail with it. Sometimes he dragged it and sometimes he carried it.

    I had an issue using FireFox's new VPN. One of the servers I selected had their IP blocked by WhiteBlaze.net. I switched to another server and it worked again. I have a feeling the admin has blocked...

    The suburban Orlando section isn't bad. I recommend it. If your definition of a long trail is one that is only in the wilderness and away from people then you don't belong on the Florida Trail. A...

    That's a good section to do. I thru hiked the FT last year. You have a 30 mile road walk just north of Jane Green campsite (mile 297). You could skip this, not miss anything, and go 30 miles further...

    I hiked it from March 26 to April 7. If I recall correctly I hiked 180 miles. I went from Lake Fort Smith to Tyler Bend in Buffalo National River. I didn't realize they had a Guthook app now. You...

    It's a great trail! I hiked it in 2015. I highly recommend the Ozark Highlands Trail Guide by Tim Ernst. The guide is a a bit dated but it worked very well for me. There are quite a number of creek...

    Roan Mountain Water Report

    I just finished a hike from Hughes Gap to Highway 19-E over Roan Mountain. Here is a water report of the the sources that I personally observed between September 19-21.

    I was told that the Executive Director of the ATC spends about 2/3 of their time rasing money. If Suzanne Dixon wasn't bringing in the money she would not last long. Makes sense to me as the first...

    I had an awesome stay there in 2017. I thought it was one of the better run hostels I've seen.

    My knowledgable source told me that the ATC has had 8 Presidents/CEOs in their history. Only 3 lasted more than 2 years. A huge part of the job these days is raising money. Here are two news stories...

    Not really. No need to go all the way to Groundhog Creek shelter. There is excellent and ample camping at Painter Branch which is 2.3 miles north of Standing Bear. The campsite is not obvious from...

    Keep Googling. You'll get to the right answer. The Penobscot Indians named it Katahdin (or a variation of it) long before they met any white man or ever heard the word "mount". Also, check out what...

    It's just Katahdin. It's only fitting, since Natives of Maine always referred to it as Katahdin and so does the state.

    Not true. The JMT crosses Highway 120 twice.

    The Overmountain shelter is indeed scenic, iconic and well loved. But I doubt there's anything historic about it. Heck, the available space isn't used...

    Since when does there *have* to be a welcome sign when entering a state? If there was such a silly requirement then there would many signs along the AT in TN/NC. For many, many miles you are going...

    I never knew there was a debate on what the four-state challenge was. It's always been to hike in four AT states within 24-hours. Going from Pen-Mar to Loudoun Heights satisfies this.

    I suggest starting at Davidson campground. You have a more gradual climb at the beginning and save the best scenery for last. Then you have a nice long downhill to the Boy Scout camp.
