Anaconda was a cool town stop for me,  but with all the work on the Butte route, I would cut out the Anaconda road walking and give Butte a go...

Sorry, I lost 17 items here, because I made a mistake with the keys on this damn 
eek, while reviewing this to send it.  I don't remember enough to recreate it.
 do remember that in the Engineer Cyn area the tr markings were poor, because, 
gain, the GPS track was .2-.5 mi up in the hills fm the actual tr dn on the 
ds.
S, go ahead & post these, even though they're way late.

I found a Hefty zip bag of maps a couple of days ago on the way down Sheridan Canyon. It contained JLey maps 41a&b. There is also a very detailed data book type chart for the 1st 239 miles. Surely there is a very sad hiker out there. I would be happy to mail these to their orphaned owner though it may be a bit late. I should be in Lordsburg on 5/5/2010.

By the way, these newish XC BLM routs are a blast and the stash boxes with water are great too.
Happy hiking,
Voyageur

Sorry, I lost this one also; having the shift key down & hitting the back button 
t the same time deletes everything. I was reviewing it & making corrections. My 
pologies.
here is a critical turn, R, @ a tr jct bef the Tyrone (Mine) Rd; I missed it & 
nded up abt 3 mi further W on T Rd; the R turn is not the CDT, which crosses T 
d & eventually deadends in the middle of nowhere until the new rte to the W of 
ilver City is finished.

Hi all--
I am planning a section hike from Rogers Pass (near Helena, MT) to Bannock
Pass (near Leadore, ID)-- about 400 miles on the regular route. I notice
that in the journals a lot of people are planning to take the Anaconda cut
off--it's about 100 miles shorter. My question is this, does anyone know if
besides being shorter, it's more scenic or there is any other reason to take
it? I asked this question a little differently a few months ago and didn't
get a lot of response. Does anyone have an opinion or experience with either
of these routes? If the Anaconda route is just as good, it would give me
time to walk further on into Wyoming.

Thanks
Jo

Years ago I did the cut off but it's my understanding over the past few 
years lots of work, trail and signage, has gone into the Butte route..  
If I were to do it again, especially section hiking, I'd take the 
official route.

Here's Jonathan's answer from last year...

I just wanted to put a ?shout out? to the non-Anaconda route (i.e. 
actual CDT) around Butte? Each year, quite a lot of hikers take the 
Anaconda cutoff. While years ago this part of the CDT was mostly a 
lengthy road-walk, it?s now quite a lot better and mostly all trail. My 
guess is that a lot of old information is still in circulation; 
incorrectly describing the CDT route in that area. Actually, the 
Anaconda cutoff may have more road walking than the CDT route (even 
including Delmoe Lake Road). So, if your goal is to stay off roads, 
you?re probably better-off with the CDT.

The forest service, CDTA, and local volunteers have put a lot of effort 
into improving the trail in this section, and it?d be great if more 
thru-hikers could ?show it some love?.

Yes, it?s a little longer than the Anaconda cutoff, but it?ll only 
lengthen your trip by a couple days? And is a couple more days in the 
mountains really all that bad?

Anyway, hike your own hike and all that? but give the Butte trail a 
chance, eh?

Good luck & best wishes to all out there in 2009!

-Jonathan

The CDTA has done lots of cool new singletrack in that area from what I understand.

If I did the CDT again, I'd do the Butte route and the bootheel route for that matter, too.

The beauty of the CDT, it's a changing, breathing, growing organism.
