I have read about this trail (Smithsonian magazine)and have actually dreamed about hiking it...or at least part of it (since I am now gettin old).
I was struck (while reading the info at the link you gave) by the fact that the first folks to hike the length of the trail did so on Sept 1, 1972...i.e. one day before Mike & I got married...almost 35 years ago...Hmmm...kinda cool tie-in.
I want to read that book.
