Time of year
What time of the year do you plan on going? If you want to avoid crowds, you're going to want to avoid the AT thru hikers who leave between January - March April (probably peak March). There pr...

JMT
The trail is very well marked and quite well worn. If you go in July or August when most of the snow has melted off, it would be hard to get lost if you can read a trail sign that points you to the...
