Great trail. Managed to finish the 21 miles in 9 hours. Not to muddy but some spots were very wet. Lots of wildlife to see.

Pros: A good overnight for first-timers with a lot of pretty decent elev gain/descent. Lean-tos were great with picnic tables, fire rings, outhouses, water sources and tarps. Cons: Pretty much no views. Some sections were pretty muddy and the trail degradation has gotten pretty bad in those areas from people going around the mud pots, but the trail in between those couple areas was fine. Lean-to areas hit pretty hard by people who don't follow LNT. Overall good if you're looking to get in the woods for a weekend and not see many people. Went on Memorial day weekend and saw three groups total.

One negative - muddy. We spent as much time slogging through mud on the trail (or bushwhacking off trail around impassible sections) as we did on the trail at a decent pace. It has been a wetter than normal spring and we got dumped on for six hours on the first night. That being said, my daughter (17) and I had a wonderful trip. Stayed at 2 of the 3 lean-tos on our 2 night, 3 day trek. We started at ASP 2 and hiked through to PA 346. Had one of the coolest wildlife encounters on our first night as 2 doe circled our camp coming within 10 feet of us over the course of 30 minutes. We just happened to be quiet and in the campfire smoke when they came in...they had no idea we were there. We also saw salamanders, lots of toads , a big green bullfrog, one other deer while hiking and a couple of garter snakes. I would highly recommend this trail if you wear waterproof hiking boots and gaiters...I was wearing trail runners - not a good choice. Grades aren’t overly steep, maps were accurate, scenery was beautiful. Only saw one other group of people (5 family/friends together) which we shared a shelter with.

Well marked trail with some easily covered blowdown trees. lots of mud with the spring run off, making it slow going at times. Overall, a favorite trail.

We did a small part of this about six months ago and came back to do from the PA line to ASP 3. There was about 8 inches of fresh snow on the trail, and parts of it had deep mud under the snow, so it was slow and slippery. We recalled the trail being pretty clear to see when there isn't snow, but with the ground covered it wasn't always easy to find where we were meant to go. At about the 6.5 mile mark the blazes disappeared. We spent quite a while trying to find any markers, but ended up having to bushwhack our way downhill to the Mt. Tuscarora trail to take us back to the road and our car. There were footprints in the snow from a few other people who had also wandered around trying to find where the trail continued (and failing). It's a pretty forest trail when you can find it.

Nicely laid out trail, with very few people encountered. Watched a pair of fishers near Willis creek and encountered a few deer.

http://www.cnyhiking.com/NCT-AlleganyStatePark.htm has the break down of this section of trail we completed. it is 21 miles and we started at the PA/NY border and ended at ASP2 road. There's three lean toos along this section, we started at two of them. I wish i had my GPS at the time or i would have recorded it.
