My long time hike friend and I are planning our first hike on the AT. Start at Springer Mtn and do five day hike, then return. We are willing to start farther up the trail, if recommended.
I have never hiked in mountains before. I have hike Isle Royal, MI about four times. And we typically hike between 7-11 miles per day. I'm not sure what to schedule for this trip. Right now my plan is to hike from Springer to Neels Gap about 30 miles in about 5-6 days. I don't if that is reasonable for part time hikers.
Any thoughts or recommendations would be appreciated.
