Bigfoot Trail Map

Preparing For Another Year of Section Hiking

Next month I will begin the process, as I did in 2011, of Section hiking the BFT in order to build GPS data for the entire trail which can later be used for building a guide-book for future thru-hikers. I will start at Section 01 which is 11 miles as I did not do this in 2011 due to the remote location of this.

I totally fail to see why the guy who put together the BFT decide to start this trail at Mt. Linn - yeah its one of the top 10 mountains in California, but it is just the stupidist place ever to start a thru-hike. Its a freaking 70 mile drive to the nearest town and 96 miles from the nearest airport. I spent probably a week last year trying to find a different starting point for this trail and think if I ever actually put together a guide book it will be starting at a different location - like Ruth lake which is very easy to get too, has a store, and a very easy connection point that actually meets up with the original BFT near highway 36. It would mean hiking around 20 less miles and not getting to see a couple patches of trees, nor getting to see Mount Linn, but for anybody coming into the area from outside it is a million times more logical starting place.

But anyway, I am still going to do Section 1 just to have the GPS data to be true to the trail.
