Benton MacKaye Trail

I just got back from the Benton MacKaye Trail in North Georgia with the boys and it was pretty good.

A fellow counselor of mine took a bunch of photos and I am getting him to send them to me, so I will post them when I get a chance.
We hiked the planned twenty four miles in a reasonable amount of time. The third day was the toughest even though we only hiked about seven miles. There were some steep ascents the were tough for a couple of the boys.
Today we summited Springer Mountain as it is the beginning of the Benton MacKaye and there was a 1.8 mile section there that we had missed on the first day. We slack packed to the summit and that missed section. At the summit, I informed the boys that I was leaving and only one of them gave the fist pump and “yesss”.
Well, I will update later.

    Hey Reuben! I have done that section of the BMT. The part by Springer is pretty easy but there is a section past three forks that was a little hairy if I remember. I am planning to thru-hike the BMT in January with one of my hiking buddies. What are your plans for the fall?
