https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hundred-Mile_Wilderness: The Hundred-Mile Wilderness is the section of the Appalachian Trail running between Abol Bridge just south of Baxter State Park and Monson in the state of Maine. It is generally considered the wildest section of the Appalachian Trail, and one of the most challenging to navigate and traverse. This section of the A.T. is crossed by several logging roads and is maintained by the Maine Appalachian Trail Club. It consists of a small corridor of protected wilderness surrounded by large tracts of public and private land controlled by paper companies. An increasing amount of the adjoining lands are being protected by groups like the Appalachian Mountain Club and the Nature Conservancy.

I will be returning to the Hundred Mile Wilderness in mid August or early September of 2022 to attempt a sub-24 hour NOBO time. I have not decided if it will be supported or unsupported yet. I will reply to this thread with more details a couple months ahead of time.
I'm planning to run a SoBo Unsupported Hundred Mile Wilderness on the weekend of August 13. I haven't been on the trail there yet, so I'm filled with hubris and trepidation, but I suppose all of that will be tested on the mud, roots, and rocks of Maine soon. Perhaps I'll run into Finn out there. Tracker link and more specific start time to follow.
I am heading out from Abol Bridge this afternoon (2022-08-12 around 1:30pm) armed with 16000 Calories, two filter bottles, and 12000 lumens. Here's my tracker link:
It should ping every 15 minutes. I'll also be tracking with a GPS watch.
