I hiked most of the Pinhoti (skipped about 20 miles of road walking, and technically skipped the first short section of the thru hike since I’d done it already). Doing obscure trails is much harder with regards to any kind of guide and resupplying. When I did the Pinhoti, there was barely any info on it. Just some descriptions of the various sections and trail head locations. I was on my own for resupplying. One resupply consisted of just a Dollar General, and not one of the big ones with a full grocery store. Pretty much just goyslop.
Now there’s a Guthooks guide and a pretty comprehensive website. Darwin did a video on it, and I really can’t stand the guy, but it’s basically the only Pinhoti thruhike video out there. None of that changes the fact that these trails have a lot less support. >>2497676>you’ll feel like shit after a few days
Have you never hiked for more than a few days? >>2497678
This sounds like sour grapes.
The AT was designed to pass through some of the most scenic areas in the East. The ease of resupply came about later, as more and more people did it. You have thousands of people hiking it, so hostiles and shuttles spring up to meet the demand, and knowledge is passed from person to person.>just hike loops lol
Have you ever done this? I’ve found loop trails are very limiting and a little rare.
