It's a beautiful trail. I recommend purchasing the guide book from the SHT site or locally if you can find it.
I bought the latest edition of the book and it really is great. Especially since I have yet to actually hike the SHT. But, I will be going there a few times this year to get an idea of what it's like and some good areas to start. I'll probably end up bugging you guys for suggestions as well.
