Northville- Placid Trail thru hike

The first week of September I set out to hike the NPT. Six days later I succeeded. Other than a wet start, the trip went well. I have a photo heavy, thorough TR at my website at the link below.

Good stuff! This is a great time of year to hike the NPT for reasons you laid out at the end of your report. I'll be heading out to the Adirondacks in a few weeks and am considering kicking off my trip in the West Canada Lakes wilderness area. Looks nice in those photos!

Thanks for the report. I appreciate reading of your experience. The NPT is a long term goal of mine but 20+ mile days are no longer a realistic expectation for me. I'll need to add a few days to your adventure but hopefully I can still make it a reality. My biggest issue is I'm not against going alone but my wife would be a lot happier if I had some company. To be honest, I probably would as well since it's always nice to have another person to talk to.

That's all for now. Take care and until next time...be well.

Thanks for sharing Tomcat. I'm going to take on the NPT in another week. I hope to do as well as you did.
