    Since I know my standard pace is around 2 feet. I use 7 standard paces. Which of course is approximately 14 feet.
    So I would say 15 feet would be optimal for me.

    I find that extending my arms with the outstretched trekking poles I use gives me a very consistent and adequate measure for picking a site. I don't really know what that works out to interms of distance but I have enough room to hang my tarp (it's close but that's not a bad thing.) From there I set up my hammock underneath that. I agree the hammock is not the critical measure for the minimum length. The tarp is what sets that.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    I normally take 5 big steps tree to tree (guessing around 15'..). This works best for me...
