If you want to string a few trails together, the ones that might work are the PCT(leaving in April,nb) Colorado Trail(mid August,sb)Arizona Trail(end of sept,sb)Ouachita Trail (start Nov,EB)Florida Trail(Dec,nb). And then depending on how much time and money you have you could just continue north on the East Coast Trail( Pinhoti Trail, Benton MacKay,AT,IAT). Of course all this depends on the weather cooperating. You would have to bus or hitch between trails but I was just trying to link them together in the order you could do them at the right time of the year considering heat,snow not backtracking too much etc.
