    Long Trail Planning Guide

    Hey Folks...My wife and I put together a site focused on the Long Trail.

    We've tried to put as much planning information on the site after having compiled a bunch of stuff for my own hike of the LT in 2013. Also played around making some maps, since I enjoy it.

    I'd love to here any feedback to improve the site. Thanks!

    This is great news. I am taking off next Friday for the first 5 divisions, then working up to Canada as the summer progresses. I will check this out.

    Great site... Thanks!

    The information is helpful and varied, and easy to access.

    My one suggestion would be more images, and to be able to click on them to zoom.

    Thanks again!
    Add life to your years!

    I'd come across this earlier somehow, and already had it bookmarked.

    A useful resource.

    Thanks for taking the time, effort, and expense to set it up.

    Thanks for the guide. I'm just starting my planning for a 2016 SOBO in late summer early fall. Just briefly looking over your site it seems like it has all the information I was looking for.

    I appreciate the work that you and your wife put into the site. I am going to be fortunate to hike the LT this August and I will most certainly use your site as a planning resource
