Home base: New York, NY
Miles: Exclusively by hiking, section-hiking sections 1 – 15.
Describe the NET: The NET offers a lot of variety, from smaller mountains to wooded areas to ridgelines.
Advice for NET Hikers: Try to find a hiking group that can help you spot cars; it’s so much easier than having to out-and-back a section.
My favorite part about hiking long trails like this is the many variations in terrain, flora/fauna, people, etc., that you encounter along the way. It’s not just monotonous repetition, but each area is a new experience.
