Re: Black Forest Trail

I'm getting poles this weekend I forgot to buy them last time I was in town along with rain gear. From my hunting trips to the near by areas I can only guess I'll have no cell service? Snakes are my only concern I've played with alot of them as a kid but always avoided the venomous ones. I've had plenty of near encounters an know to avoid sows n cubs I will be taking my handgun just for protection. I'll be taking a camera as well thanks.

From September to April my world revolves around hunting the rest is preseason.

Don't forget to leave a detailed plan of what your doing, or possible doing (shortcuts), with at least one trustworthy person.

I was at the top of Slate Run road last weekend at the 44 juncture and had some reception with Verizon.

Re: Black Forest Trail

So from reading that can I expect to cross chest deep stream?

Re: Black Forest Trail

We did have some cell service at various spots on top of the mountains. to carrying a gun. I carry a small one. Probably just piisss off a bear, but you are back in the middle of no where, so you never know who you meet up with. You do cross several streams, the biggest I think is Slate Run. With all this rain they will be high, not sure about the chest high though. Good luck.

Enjoy life and take a hike on the AT.

Thinking about hiking this at some point. Anyone hiked this trail recently? Any advice for a Spring 3 day hike here?
