    any solo camping issues?

    I have hiked 100s of miles of the pines with at least 10 overnights solo and never had any real problems..accept 1) During my Batona I camped at Lower Forge there was an entire family camped there blasting radios and making noise real late. Not what I wanted after a 25 plus mile hiking day...

    Favorite spot to take a 3-6 mile hike

    A walk through Double Trouble during Cranberry Harvesting is nice. Explore the old buildings, one mile or so nature trail get off the beaten path and stumble upon the Crabbe family Cemeterey..You could easily put in 3 miles here..

    Batona Trail hike

    I think the best way to do the trail Is starting south at Bass River. Start early enough to pick up the permit to camp at lower forge at Batsto and also pick up some lunch from the hot dog vendor there.At this point you will also be able to refill your water containers.. By midday the next day...
