2021 FLT Wrap-up

A landing page for my FLT 2021 hike with links to all the GPX, media, planning docs, etc.

In June of 2021, I attempted to see how fast I could do a thru-hike of the Finger Lakes Trail. I went in injured and not very confident, but ended up succeeding at completing the thru-hike in 21 days 14 hours. I learned a lot about blisters, pacing, and pain management and actually enjoyed a reasonable amount of the experience. :). This is a landing page that I’ll update as I add some links to other posts about the experience.
