There is nearly 128 miles of continuous trail from south of Solon Springs east through Copper Falls State Park.

Planning to do a fall backpack of most of it, beginning at S Mail Rd (SW of Solon Springs) and ending at Will Rd (NE of Copper Falls St Park).

Here is a link to the NCTA's working online map. It is scaled to our section. As you zoom in, details will emerge like campsites, parking and points-of-interest.

Can arrange for day hikers and shuttles as things develop.

To view the Hike Plan, open the "more" tab in the tool bar above and then select "files" and then open the hike plan file.

As of this writing, the Forest Service closed the NCT between Hwy D and Mellen due to road and bridge washouts and most of the Forest Roads in that area remain closed. I will have an update from the Forest Service around September 17. So, I am not updating my hike plan yet until I confirm the status of the Trail around the 17th.

Keep watching this space and the comments below.
