Trails

Soon after I first started hiking seriously in 2004 I started getting into peakbagging. Since then I've done the New Hampshire 4K, the New England 4K, the Adirondack 46, the Northeast 111, the Catskills 35, and the New England 50 Finest lists. I'm still pursuing the New England 100 Highest, and trying to redo the Northeast 111, but lately I've been getting interested in completing trails. Here is a list of trails I've done, trails I've partially done, and trails I'm interested in doing some day (not necessarily realistically). I've set a cut off of 20 miles, or else this would be full of day hike trails.

These are the meanings of the columns:
Name: the trail's name, with a link, usually to the maintainers' organization
Length: the length in miles - If I've completed it the length when I completed it, otherwise the length the last time I updated this page
States: the states (or provinces) it passes through, in postal codes ordered by length of trail
Status: red: not started; yellow: started, less than half done; green: more than half but not completely done; blue: done
Type: whether I did it as a Through hike or a Section hike
Dir.: direction I went (or am going) in. FF = Flip Flop = out of order
Year: year I completed the trail
Links: hyperlinks: TJ: Trailjournal; TLyear: trail log; PG: dedicated picture gallery

Notes:

1. or 260, if you skip Duluth
2. mostly NOBO
3. This is the only trail here which isn't an official trail. It's the Mohawk Trail plus the section of the Appalachian Trail between its ends. It's a known thing, though, not something I made up.
4. Currently (August 2022) this is closed at the border.
