    Though people seem to do the AT in more different setups (S-N, N-S, start in the middle and then return to finish the other half and more). Maybe that's not the case with the other trails (as it...

    I believe they went as far as was allowed then turned back. Would make sense that would qualify, similar to any other situation where a section of the trail is not available (weather, bridge...

    Just to clarify - I believe that is a Dutchess County Route 20 (US 20 is what you cross in MA just north of the Mass. Pike).

    Not much help on the shower, though - maybe someone needs to suggest...

    If you wind up with a short section (for instance the 6.5 miles mentioned in the second post, or possibly even less), one option to save on trying to get rides and having a very short hike would be...

    That will depend on what the remainder of the winter brings, but it is likely to be late spring (later in May if not into early June) before some sections lose all their winter. You may be able to...

    In that case it might make more sense to follow the rule often suggested for shuttles - park where you plan to end your hike and then get the Uber to the start point. That way you know up front if...

    That always seems a bit backward for a couple reasons:

    First being that it is usually easier for someone going uphill to stop than for someone going downhill (simple gravity rules) and second...

    True. I wasn't suggesting it would always happen, just that it would be easy enough to do so if someone was around when the situation occurred (someone on a bike going uphill without pedaling) as...

    Question - you say the bear came into your campsite, but since it wouldn't find anything there (as you say you stored everything correctly), one might suspect it would just leave?

    It sort of makes sense that northbound could be a bit faster, simply in that the northern endpoint is listed at 950' while the southern one is listed as 1902' (at least in the 2006 book I have to...

    I guess the easy part would be to give a ticket (or whatever) to someone going uphill without pedaling (as that isn't physically possible without the power helping). That would be pretty obvious.

    Just work out your schedule to stay there a night when rain is predicted, then the only problem you'll have with the water source is crossing it to get back to the trail :).
