Hiking C&O

I hiked the entire C&O in June. Though it was a great experience, I never came across another through hiker over 15 days..

I too did a thru hike of the C+O in the spring of 2011, from the end of March into the beginning of April. I hiked westbound and there was one other going the same direction as part of the American Discovery Trail. In my opinion the C+O would be the perfect place for a person to do their first backpacking trip.
