    I can't tell you how many "camp shoe" (and hiking boot, yes boot as there is only one) along the side of the trail I've come across. They seem to fall off the back of packs pretty easily.

    Just hike RT 9 until you get to the AT :)

    Looks to me the best you can do is link up a whole lot of secondary roads which head more or less in that direction. `I have a map called OpenCycleMap on...

    There are other options. As Gambit says, the southern end of the AT in PA is pretty mellow. Basically a walk in the woods. I only took about a dozen photos along the AT in the entire length of PA. I...

    Never heard of Jim Thorpe, had to google it. Looks to be an interesting area in the Poconos. The AT is not very close to that area and the part which is, is very rocky and the section which gives PA...

    Never say never, but I don't see myself doing a big section of the AT again any time soon. Been there, done that, probably too many times already. But with part of it running...

    You'd have to check their web site. I don't think the park pass applies to lodging, which the huts would be considered. You need to apply for a thru hiker pass when you get near the park and pony up...

    There's always at least one person who sleeps soundly - and loudly. The rest, maybe not so much. I don't find ear plugs all that helpful. Ear plugs dims the noise some, but not nearly enough to be of...
