  • Thru Hike

    On 12 Dec I ran into a couple of guys hiking the trail. Talked to them for a few minutes before we all continue with our hikes.

    Tonight I got an email from them: ( I removed their address and email link )

    Report: We finished the 21 miles in 8 hours and 35 minutes. We encountered the water you mentioned to us on the trail. Fortunately, while we got a little wet we felt like it could have been worse What a lovely day to do it!

    We enjoyed speaking with you, and your dog, on the trail Monday.

    We hiked the whole 21 miles ... loved it.

    Sam is my dog who hikes with me on the trail and has to make friends with everyone. The water on the trail refers to the section of trail between Deep Creek Rd and Alligator Tram Rd.

    They have been added to the Hikers Hall of Fame for having completed the whole trail.
