Agony Grind/ Appalachian Trail

Recommended Posts

   I just had 2 Throwaway  Cameras developed  from 2016 + 2017.  I have one really good picture of a portion of AGONY GRIND. This section runs from Orange Turnpike in Tuxedo to Rt. 17 in Tuxedo. It usually took me a good 2 hours round trip.  Check out this dangerous  Trail!

I lived next to the trail in Connecticut 30 years ago. Family actually sold some property and an easement for the trail to go across. I admittedly spent more time mountain biking it(which, by the the way, is verboten...oops)  than I did hiking but it was a lot of fun.

The guy in this picture was just hanging around just off of Rt. 17. He was not in a talking mood and kept watching  me.  I had to pass him on my return trip up. Not comfortable/ head on a Swivel.   Glad,I had these 2 old cameras developed .

My good friend walked the entire trail last summer . He was telling me the very last portion was the most dangerous and the trail even had signs string that if you get hurt it will take a long time til responders can reach you.

 There was a time that hiking the whole thing  sounded like fun.. 😉

Section in Maine called the “hundred mile wilderness” after that it gets back into the hills ending on Katahdin  in Baxter State Park.

I’ve sectioned hiked a fair bit (thats doing pieces here and there); I’d like to do more in Virginia.

I live close to trail also, 10 miles.

Its change a lot from everyone I talked to; lots of creepy folks around. For me its like hiking ADK’s. I’ll never be a 46er as many of the viewless peaks just don’t interest me for a list.

I'd be giving you nasty looks too if you were being creepy and taking pictures of me. :)

I don't feed trolls.

Happy New Year Rob. Hope you got a Deer.

  The Dude in the pic was sitting on a Flat rock and watching me as,I descended down to the Trailhead. I rested 5 minutes and started up to have him right there standing.  I took the pic in case something  popped off. Awareness  is vitally important  in the woods with Man or Beast. I am always checking my Backtrail- just ask Cynthia.

He has an incredible amount of stories and said he met some very unique people along the way.

Yeah , I remember meeting a lot of dreadlocked "hippies".  1 old lady that hiked in sandals. We sat and had lunch together at the top of one of the local peaks. She had hiked 1000s of miles solo and her feet looked like it.lol.

Everybody I had the opportunity to talk to seemed like good folks. I'm not sure where others are finding the "bad" ones.;)
