This section of the Appalachian Trail is over 100 miles long, and wanders extensively though varying terrain that includes ponds, bogs, mountains, undulating terrain, and rocky summits with alpine conditions.
There are too many features to describe in this text. Even the limited number of images can only convey an impression. For details, please consult the relevant Appalachian Trail Guide.
Ara and Ron have made some new friends on the trail, who have added comments to their website... enjoy these journals at Sobohobos.com (Mention 1, Mention 2).
Any trail marked as "wilderness" or even any section of the AT that is in the backcountry, can be expected to require significant experience and comprehensive supplies, including
- Water filtering equipment (drinking unfiltered water can lead to illness or death)
- Extensive food supplies (more than enough to make it through the expected duration, especially in case a member of the party becomes ill or injured)
- A wide range of clothing
- Extensive first aid equipment and training.
- Many other items too numerous to list.
Please do not attempt these trails unless you have the right equipment and are in top condition.
