    Default End to End Attempt 2023

    Hi all, I am going to attempt an end to end hike of the Long Trail in September 2023. Is anyone interested in going, or doing sections with me?

    I would love to so let's see what the year will be like and then talk about it.

    September is a very popular time to be on the LT so don't worry if you don't find partners before you start. You will have plenty of company on trail and will find yourself camping with folks who hike at a similar pace night after night. Pack for all four seasons because those VT mountains are fickle in terms of weather. I went SOBO in June seeing temps from 30s to near 90.

    I believe he's finished (YEAH!!!) his End-to-End. On his Instagram, he's doing a trail in New Jersey now. Seems like he's finally got prosthetics that can keep up with him.

    I just finished the southern AT/LT portion last week. Indeed, there were quite a few people finishing up SOBO end-to-end LT hikes at the end of September. Southern Vermont was beautiful, and I was told by several LT hikers that the northern part of the trail is even better.
    It's all good in the woods.

    We did an e2e hike in 2014, when we were in our early 50s. The LT is a tough hike but Vermont is beautiful. Have fun.
