Pie Town, et al

Backpacker is no stranger to the CDT. In fact, just last June we ran a four-page spread pointing out some of the trail's high points in a "Best of the Classic Trails" issue. A link to the online version is to the right under CDT Links, and if you're looking to get a feel for the trail as a whole, an interactive map is also posted (click here to check it out).

The map highlights towns a long the trail, most of which project participants will come across in one way or another this summer. It gives a good ballpark notion as to what the trail traverses, although the official route has changed a bit (as is the nature of the CDT at this stage). The map also sheds some light on the trail's character, at least through populated areas -- you can't go wrong in a place named Pie Town, after all.
