I am also planning on hiking the CDT in the summer of 2008. I look forward to meeting each of you on the hike. In terms of the length of the CDT, I would look at the CDT trailjournals posted on trailjournals.com. Finishing hikers report their accumulated mileages and comment throughout on their routes; that should give you a better idea. Most seem to report around 2600 to 2700 and odd miles.
Best of luck,

I am planning on doing the CDT in the summer of 2008. I am a ultra runner who lives in Lynchburg, VA. I have previously set the speed record on the Long Trail, AT, and PCT. I plan on starting the CDT around June 5-10, 2008 at the Mexican border. I know that Squeaky set the record of 75 days in 2005 unsupported. I plan on doing it supported somewhere around 65 days, plus or minus 5 days, depending on the length of the trail.> I know that you are thinking, how can you set a record on a trail that is not complete or has various routes? I plan on hiking the official trail as much as possible and not taking any shortcuts.> How long is the trail if I do it this way?? I hear the CDTA saying it is 3100 miles. When Squeaky and Flyin Brian did it, they both reported 2700 miles.> I know I have a lot to learn and I look forward to learning from many of you.> I love the trails> In Christ> David Horton> The Runner> AT 1991> PCT 2005> CDT 2007> ________________________________> _______________________________________________> cdt-l mailing list> cdt-l at backcountry.net> http://mailman.hack.net/mailman/listinfo/cdt-l
