    The issue with that section is not just South Kinsman its the cumulative effort. Lot of not so insignificant PUDS between the notch and Eliza Brook. Many thruhikers are accustomed to far longer daily...

    My guess is that the publicity changed folks behavior more than a drop in actual thru hiker traffic . It was pretty standard for many folks that were not thru hikers to go into the park via Abol...
