    Agree with the comments on Shawnee. It defeated me two years ago. I'm hoping to tackle the whole 40-miles this fall, but it's certainly not a good beginner's hike.
    I did that one last year in Feb and there were MANY blow downs. It was pretty messy. They have probably cleaned it up a lot by now. It was a nice hike. I did both loops. I had the old GPS with me (along with map and compass) and it was nice to have a couple of times.

    Let me know when you are heading out to WH. If you want company I might be game. I would like to see if they have done any work on the trail.

    Also, Let me know what you guys have in mind Everett.

    I attended a Leave No Trace trainer course last October at Wildcat Hollow. We cleaned up several areas along way, but there is a lot more to do.

    Man! I almost signed up for that course! I had a conflict in dates or I would have met you.

    Right now, the game plan is the Saturday & Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. I hate going out on the holidays, but that seems to work best with the wife's class schedule right now. I'm a solo hiker in part b/c of the three little ones. They tend to dictate when trips get canceled or rescheduled, sometimes at the last minute.

    Wildcat Hollow plans changed. Bumped to the Sat/Sun after Memorial Day.

    Still up for an Ohio hang, if organized.
