This summner I am going to be on the east coast visiting family and traveling for a about a month and I want to do A little AT thru hike. I have family all over New England so I want to stay up there, maybe Maine, Massachussets, New Hampshire. Any suggestions. I am thinking 7- 10 days and I'm looking to get pumped up by fellow ultralighters.

Any of the AT is Maine is great in my book. I haven't done it, but hear most of NH is great too.

Long Trail? on 12/08/2013 13:58:21 MST Print View

If you want to be able to say you completed a trail you might consider the Long Trail. Doing it in 10 days might be a stretch but you could try.

10 days is pretty quick for LT. I did it in 19 days with 1 zero and 2 nero's. in the 18-20mi/day range. NH is way more scenic though.

Could do NH.. 160mi or so some of the most exposed and scenic parts of the AT i'd think.

That sounds like an exciting thru hike thanks for the advice.

Thru-hiking is defined as hiking a long-distance trail end-to-end.
