    Time Zone I am sure it is as frustrating for you as it is for me and others that live so locally that the CT is not complete, nor well maintained. On the flip side, I'm local and not exactly beating down the bushes to volunteer.

    The lack of the CT completion hence my start of the BMT, ST, and PT. They are all 3 relatively local (within 2-4 hours of me) and are complete as well as maintained.

    What are the ST and PT? I know the BMT and CT.

    I hear you! The CT is basically within 0.5-2.5 hours from me, so it has a bit of home court advantage. Plus it's the proverbial (poetical?) road less traveled. The driving logistics of more distant hikes is a bit of a challenge, as I have some self-imposed constraints in that regard.

    But ... yeah. I should look more seriously at some of those others - PT, ST, and BMT. In your sig lines, you have quite a set of odometer readings going! Kudos.

    Do they allow overnight parking at Devil's Breakfast Table now? Last I was there, they did not, and that's a real limiting factor in that area. You have to dayhike it, unless there is other parking nearby.

    There's also a "bridge advisory" mentioned on the Friends of the Cumberland Trail website:
    Where: Devil’s Breakfast Table – Main Bridge over Daddy’s Creek
    Ranger and Maintenance staff are looking to remedy the situation.
    I wonder what the bridge advisory is. Can you even get back to your car after a dayhike of the DBT section? Or is the bridge OK for hikers and pedestrians, but not for cars?
