Route: NJ Appalachian Trail (NJ)

New Jersey, US

The Appalachian Trail runs for about 72 miles through New Jersey.


Just curious....I am considering an FKT on the Virginia section of the AT.  There is currently none listed.  For your one state AT FKT, did you research the times layed down by the recent AT FKT record breakers (Jurek, Meltzer, Stringbean, Lewis, etc.) for that section?   If there is currently no FKT declared for a State section, can any time be registered as an FKT until disputed, or is it incumbent on the FKT seeker to research any possible recorded time that may be faster?  I suppose it depends on whether the full AT record holders tracked their times by State, or if that GPS data is still recorded somewhere?  Thanks for any advice you can give!
