I had to reschedule twice this year and it looks like the 18th is the date.Anyone interested let me know.
If you are just looking for a nice long hike I would suggest the the West Rim Trail or Black Forest Trail's in PA. They both offer a real challenge, with awesome payoff views, and aren't near as buggy, but if you have your heart set on the Batona ROCK ON!! Wear some gaiters, it'll cut down on that low brush and be real careful of the ticks.NJHIKERADAM said:I will definately hit you up in Fall.....but I will be on this summer mission with a whole lot of DEET........I too logged some hefty miles on the AT, and recently hiked the D&R Main Feeder Trenton to New Brunswick in 10 hours... So I know I am up to this.....
Last month I was on the Batona from Pakim Pond to Apple Pie Hill and it was infested with vegetation overgrowth on the trail and ticks......I literally would stop every twenty feet or so and pick them off my legs......but damn I love the challenge.
Who could I contact about doing some volunteer trail maintenence?
