    Ya Gideon did you here what disco said no biting
    There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is rapture on the lonely shore, There is society where none intrudes , By the deep sea, and music in its roar, I love not man the less, but nature more. Lord Byron

    And Hairbear he said no howling after bed time. So next time you trip when getting out of the hammock in the middle of the night keep it to a simple roar.

    I just wanted to reiterate the type of trail and hike this is. We are going to be doing 10+ miles for 3 days straight over some very tough terrain; including mud, gravel, loose rock, along with climbing up boulders and stream crossings.

    This is not the hike for first-timers or the weak-hearted. I'm not saying this to scare anyone off, but I want to paint a realistic picture of what this hike will be like. It's no leisurely stroll in the woods, so be sure that you and anyone you bring along are prepared physically and with prper gear before you decide to come along.
    With beauty all around you, may you walk.

    Woot, just want the doctor ordered, tough terrain. Been doing 8 milers to get back in shape. Should be a grand time. Looking forward to it.

    Is a small matter

    Rocks, twigs, some dirt and a little more then 5 to 6 hours of walking a day.

    (This trail is a beast, just so everyone knows it is no easy task to defeat it without being defeated. I watched some video on it.)

    As of today, I still have plans on coming. Although I am going to kick some dirt down south next weekend. I think my Wife is coming to this one as well. She normally only hikes/camps in the summer. She gets cold in the shade.

    More to come!

    I cant speak for the group,but Spider and Honey bear come as a couple they are safe and welcome. It would hurt our feelings to find out any different,as we think of them as a very important members of our group.
    I also hike with a dog,so your pet would also be welcome.

    THE PLAN

    I cant edit the first post anymore, so here's the updated plan...

    Friday 8am: Meet at the Taum Sauk Mountain parking lot. Pile into a few cars and drive to the hwy A trailhead to start our hike.


    It looks like if we camp where I want to camp, we'll be doing aprox. 11 miles on day one, 7 miles on day two, and 12 miles on day 3.

    Day 1: Hwy A to Walker Branch. There is a nice site with a fire ring there, and there should be water in the branch.

    Day 2: Walker Branch to Johnson Shut Ins for Lunch, to the Scour. The Scour is a cool place to hang...neat view of the valley and the reservoir.

    Day 3: The Scour to Taum Sauk Mt.. This will be a long day, but we'll see some cool stuff like Mina Sauk Falls and Devil's Tollgate.

    A few notes about the terrain... There is every possible kind of surface along this trail. Mud, gravel, grass, dirt, moss, large boulders that you have to climb up, and several creek crossings (including the Black River). You name it, we'll walk on it. Choose your shoes/boots accordingly.
    Water was plentiful...hopefully that will be the case when we go.
    There are many areas where you are in the sun for a long time. Sunscreen is suggested.
    With beauty all around you, may you walk.

    With the terrain we have down there, what MPH Pace are we going to try to Maintain?
