A few of us are thinking about a fifty mile, five day hike on the Long Trail beginning around the end of June. I don't know the stretch but it's fifty miles and ends at the Long Trail Inn. It was featured in Backpacker Mag as a really nice hike.
My only specific question would be what to expect with regards to bugs. (read- Black Flies) We'll all be in hammocks. I don't anticipate that being a problem but if you would care to provide any insight to the hike we'd appreciate it.
