    Located just before the Three Ridges area.

    I spent the night there 2 years ago. Free camping for hikers. Shuttle too and from the trail. $5 hiker breakfast in the morning. Between the food,...

    Looks like about $400 is MSRP, so 250 is a heck of a deal.

    But, it's still nearly 3 pounds and pretty large. If you plan to use it on the AT, a tent with a large footprint is a liability in...

    If you were taking water from streams which were feed from snow fields, those streams have a lot of silt in them. That can clog a filter pretty fast. Coffee filters are often recommended to...

    It's just a clearing in the woods where apparently there was once a cheese factory some eons ago. I camped there once.

    If the footprint extends beyond the edge of the floor of the tent, water can hit the exposed part of the footprint and seep under the tent floor.

    I think that means you can stay in a motel, restaurants can do limited indoor seating and you don't need to do a 14 day quarantine coming from out of state. AMC huts will stay closed for the...

    I hiked a little of the AT up to Mt Hayes. Saw one other person. Sadly, she missed the view which is a ways off the summit. Still a bit on snow on the Residentials. I guess we officially open up June...

    Were they the same 2"x6" rectangles on trees right along the path? Mixed in with white blazes? If so, that is a little odd.

    Well, as much as I'd like to keep my local trails just to myself, that seems sort of selfish. And it's good to see them being used.

    I went and hiked a popular mountain at the southern end of the...

    Property boundaries are often marked with orange or red paint. If these were on trees along the private properly side of the trail, that would explain it.

    The AT used to pass through all dry counties in NC. That made crossing into VA a special treat. Even today, outside of a couple of trail towns where beer is allowed, the counties are otherwise dry.

    Sounds like they still want you to stay home, especially those traveling from out of state. With the early heat wave, not a great time to be hiking anyway. Wait until the fall or next spring.

    That's a $$$$$ area, bring lots of money. Sad to see Graymoor no longer allows hikers on the property, that was a good stop. Except I spent $100 on food at the near-by Appalachian Market in 2 days. ...
