It was a very pleasant hike. Of course this is Alabama and it varires. I can be hot or or we could have freezing rain.

    I will post some photos soon. It looks as if the 16-17 mile hike is the preferred option.

    My bad Ewker. It should read Mr. Parkay's maps 11 & 12. I'm still learning my numbers.

    no problem, I haven't had a chance to look at them anyway. Do you have the 2010 Pinhoti Trail Pocket Guide, if so what do you think of it?

    Count me in if there is room! I have been wanting to do that loop in the winter, I was there last July. Could not see my feet hit the ground on skyway for the overgrowth! Just kept thinking I would step on a snake!! I'm for whatever the majority wants, Backpack or Dayhike, either way I'm good to go!!! If we voting, I say backpack!!

    I have the 2009 version. Much the same as the 2010. I find it useful especially for water sources. I am planning to thru hike it in NOBO April and will rely on it heavily.
