    The mud in the NP gets deeper than on the LT, in some places you may end up fighting it to pull your boots out. On the LT, mud is mostly just sloppy.

    I've done the NP once, and the LT a handful...

    One issue with the Cohos trail that I haven't run into on other trails is that in the northern half, the trail makes use of snowmobile trails and other pre-existing trails which are not really built...
