    Default Parking or shuttles at Rt 284 NJ, for Spring Section Hike (NJ section 1,2 & NY sec13)

    I am planning a section hike going northbound from NJ Route 284 to NY 17A. This is from NJ Section 2, through NJ Section 1, to end at the northbound end of NY Section 13, at NY 17A. (I am working to "plug" holes in my AT section hiking, and have done north and south of here.)

    If I backpack with a small group, we will likely want to shuttle ourselves. From what I have read, parking overnight at Route 284 is discouraged. The note is old. If you are familiar with this location, please comment.

    If parking overnight is not recommended there, or I hike solo, or as a small group, we want to shuttle, the ATC list includes George Lightcap and also notes Vernon Taxi might be available. Can anyone comment if this information seems accurate or has any other suggestion?

    Thanks!
    Just love being outside, not sure why. 765 AT miles done (2014-2018), many more to go.

    I give an A+++ for George
    The Vernon, NJ Taxi is a minimum of $20 anywhere, and was not on time. 20 min late.
    If going into Vernon, NJ - A resupply can be done at the mixing bowl convenient store OR DG.
    The George Inn is worth the stay for dinner
    if the Hostel is full, a stay at the quality inn is decent. Did a zero in Vernon last October.
    Trail Miles: 5,125.9
    AT Map 1: Completed 13-21'
    Sheltowee Trace: Completed 20-23'
    Pinhoti Trail: Completed 23-24'

    Foothills Trail: 47.9
    AT Map 2: 279.4

    NjDreamer - I have hiked ATC from Rt 17 to VT border over last three years and would be interested in doing this bit this spring. Ping me at [email protected] if you would like to see whether logistics work.
