Hikers welcome to join AT/Bartram Loop 6/4-6/8 on 05/31/2009 09:59:00 MDT Print View

Leaving early Thursday morning from NOC parking lot. This section of the AT in the Nantahalas is quite rugged (compared to other areas the AT runs in the southern states). I completed a 55 mile section in the Nantahalas last week and expect to hike about 13-15 miles/day for this loop. A hiker recently measured this loop at 65 miles using GPS. (Trekking the Southern Appalachians says 55 miles, but I plan to allow five days either way.) This will be my last long hike of the spring and welcome any other hikers.
