  1. Congrats on completing another though hike! I really enjoyed following along here on your blog. Peace.

  2. Although I like the AT, I really don’t enjoy hiking on it when it is crowded. The nice thing about the northern half of the LT is that you can experience real solitude and get more of the wilderness vibe. There’s a lot to be said for the smaller new england trail systems when the thru-hikers show up.

  3. Definitely a good point, and it’s a bit of a dilemma for me– My favorite mountains in general are the Maine mountains on the AT, but even though they’re more difficult to access than the mountains in Vermont, they get the crowds due to being on the AT. Of course, it has been a while since I’ve done the AT section in Maine, so I may need to get out and double-check that!
