I successfully completed a thru-hike of the Benton MacKaye Trail in 2020. I was joined by hiking friends from previous thru-hikes. We started from Springer Mountain on October 22. We arrived at the northern terminus in Great Smoky Mountains National Park on November 13.
Unfortunately, because I needed time to finish blogging about my 2019 thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail, I was unable to write about my BMT hike before leaving to hike the Continental Divide Trail. I intend to post about this hike when I return from the CDT.
