I live rather close to Michaux State Forest and have always wanted to hike some of the appalachian trail but have just never done it and doing some research i figured starting close to home would be a good place to start. I have done camping trips in my youth as a boy scout an i really miss it an want to start again, my problem however is i usually work mon to fri an only have the weekends off so it limits my trips to just weekend getaways. So down to the question that requires an answer if i were to hike the appalachian trail in Michaux State Forest where would be a good place to start tht would only take say an over night trip to complete? I know everyone is different so im asking a general idea so i can get a basis of how far i can hike in a day to judge my longer trips in the future. Im 25 in fairly good shape, have plenty of camping supplies and up for the challenge. Any information will be great.
