    Why go to the park in the first place? Why deal with all the BS when just north of there is some fine hiking and good views with none of the hassles?

    COVID has definitely impacted the White...

    Do you mean Atkins to Pearisburg? You only cross I81 at Atkins and Troutdale.

    Water can be scare along that ridge walk, but it is reasonably easy. Chestnut knob is nice, on top of an exposed...

    Scented trash bags: The scent will eventually go away if you leave it out in the open for a while. Takes maybe a week or two. Maybe washing it would help reduce the smell.

    Ideally, you'd be looking for trailheads on paved, state or town roads to minimize travel time. Having to use FS roads to get somewhere for a section hike is just poor planning.

    I think the main issue is AT trailheads and parking lot locations aren't in the Google maps data base, so one has to manually locate those points. Which is fine if you know where you want start/end...

    Judging by the number of people here in the Whites this last weekend, no one is taking any of this seriously any more. With no tangible enforcement, why should they? I counted 200 cars at the...

    Good luck with the hammock set up in March. IMOHO, a tent is a much better choice for that time of year. I don't think that pad and sleeping bag will cut it in hammock. The usual cold weather set up...

    Columbus day weekend is the second weekend in October (10-11-12) and should be avoided at all costs. It is a very busy weekend and motels in the area take full advantage of it, since they know the...

    The notice is in the 2020 White Pages guide. Whether this started this year or earlier I do not know. I last stayed there, I think 4 years ago, at the ball field. The first time I stayed there in...

    Madison/Adams loop is more practical then adding in Jefferson, which is kind of out of the way and a long, hard detour. A Madison/Adams loop can be done via the Valley Way trail on RT2. There were...

    BTW, early May is good because the wild flowers, trees and bushes are starting to bloom and it is very pretty. Plus the weather has settled down.

    If you hike real slow, there are plentiful blueberries in NY during the end of July.

    The biggest mistake new thru hikers make is thinking March is a good time to start a thru hike.

    I simply climb a mountain about once a week. But then, not everyone has mountains in their back yard :)

    Deep gap is sort of out of the way, a long drive around the mountains. Getting back to Amicalola from Hiawassee is much easier, quicker and hence less expensive then from Deep Gap. Dick's Creek to...

    And yet, the OP uses a screen name, which I would guess is also his trail name.

    In any reasonably large group of people, there's a very good chance there will be several Tom, Dick's and Harry's,...

    But if they planned on doing a thru hike and didn't complete it, then they failed to do a thru hike. Kudos for trying, but the fact is they failed to compete a stated goal, pure and simple.

    If I remember right, there is no practical place to camp anywhere near the shelter (like for miles) Whitepages shows a (dry, near road) campsite about 6 miles south of Partnership.
