NJ AT Columbus Day week 2013
I'm planning to hike the New Jersey section of the AT in a couple of weeks, starting Monday, Columbus Day (or perhaps some time on Sunday) at Delaware Water Gap and doing the 70-80 miles (depending on where we choose to exit the trail at a road crossing). End day will probably be some time on Saturday, October 19th. That's about 10-12 miles a day. Leisurely.
If the government shut-down is still in effect (which has closed the Delaware Water Gap NRRA), then plans will be adjusted accordingly.
One or two WhiteBlaze.net locals from up that way plan to meet and hike with me. If anyone else is interested, get in touch with me and let's discuss.
Also, anyone care to share hints, suggestions, warnings, sites to avoid or not-to-miss? What about hunting season? Thanks in advance!
P.S. I also posted this trip on WhiteBlaze.
