I have hiked a number of sections on this trail. It is easily accessible, with numerous trail-heads with designated parking areas, and campsites every few miles, along it's entire 275 miles. The trail is well marked along a wide variety of terrain and environments. The landscape and scenic overlooks are magnificent. Whether for a day hike, or extended camping trip, this is an awesome trail to hop on any time of year.
Live not even 5 minutes away from Elys Peak, great spot! Beautiful view! Also great for a tougher trail run!
Heavenly views of the twin ports.
Elys peak stretch of LSHT has beautiful vista views and hilly. So green in the summer.
Amazon hike and views!
Spent 10 days backpacking this trail and had an amazing time! I consider it one of my best trips!
