We backpacked this section with our 4, 5 and 13 year old kids in mid-June. It was beautiful. There were mosquitoes, thunderstorms, and mud bogs on the trail, and we still enjoyed it. Campsites were nice. The bear cable at Egge Lake was very helpful....More

We are in the process of hiking shorter lengths of the Trail with the ultimate goal of hiking the entirety of the trail, piece by piece. The trails are well marked and navigable. Some of the trail head parking areas can get crowded.

No reservations needed. Just grab your stuff and go, experience the freedom of the trail. You get a wide variety of experience within each section, from cliff overlooks to pine forests to marshy boardwalks. This is my escape from the city, and I love it...More
