I'm seeking the sage advice of this wise community to help me fill a block of available time. I'm taking a new job and I'll have 2-3 weeks off between May 4 - June 4. Given I rarely have this much time off, I'd like to fill it with a challenging and fun hike. A mini thru-hike if you will (aka a section hike?).
I'll be moving from Utah to Idaho so something in the intermountain west or southwest would be ideal. I plan to hike ~15 miles a day for ~18 days, so looking for a trip of 200-300 miles.
-Hayduke or a portion of
-Southern section of PCT or CDT
I've never done a hike of this duration or distance, but I have done a whole lot of smaller trips, my gear is pretty dialed in, and I've wasted way too many hours reading trip reports and strategies.
Live vicariously through me and help me plan an epic walk!
