So a fellow hiking and hunting co worker has sparked my interest in the Black Forest Trail 41.2 mile loop hike. So after looking up the maps and reading a little bit about the hike i was thinking of giving it a try sometime when i have some vacation time stored up and some more exp in hiking. Im in roadway construction and most weekends in summer i end up working, but it just so happens due to restrictions on the memorial day weekend i will have friday to tuesday to plan a trip and seeing that this is my only chance for the near future to actually plan a long trip i am thinking of taking on the BFT. From the website i read water is through the trail so im planning on taking a water filter pump and tablets a small burner and dehydrated food, a single person tent and sleeping pack. the basic things. Im looking for any information from anyone that has taken on the BFT or any other 3 day hikes, or things im not think of. I believe it said it is a 3 day hike. When i say im a greenhorn i dont mean i have no idea what im doing i have done camping in the past and have done my fair share on hiking up and down steep mountains after turkeys and deer. I only consider my self greenhorn due to the fact i havent hiked many trails. So any information on the trail, time, tips, or good snacks to take along would be great. I will most likely be going alone as none of my friends are hiking material but being the holiday weekend i imagine there will be more then a few other people on the trail with me.
