Yesterday we set out to hike from David Logan Shelter to Sucker Brook Shelter. It was a beautiful day. We slack packed 12 miles the day before from the Inn at the Long Trail and spent a second night at the Inn. They serve a very scrumptious and filling breakfast that I highly recommend stopping […]
So excited to be on top of the world! We expect to hike around 60 miles over the next four days. Our plan is to be at Rt 17, better known as App Gap, by the end of Thursday, August 15. Then we will have hiked home to Huntington!
We continue our adventurous hike to Canada! A few obstacles and a sore IT band in my knee may have slowed us, but nothing will prevent us from enjoying the excitement the Long Trail offers.
