I got on the website acouple of hours after it opened. Three of us wanted to go. Nothing available for the dates we'd chosen. My partners couldn't chance a walk-on spot because their vacation days are limited. I was really surprised that things booked so quickly. I couldn't bare the thought of not doing the trail so am going to solo it from the south end on July 04.
Wow.. Wonder why it's so busy this year? It was easy, peasy when 3 of us booked last year in July..
At least you got your date!
We were hoping for Aug 1st (most efficient use of holiday time), but the July 30th works just as well. It also turns out that the tides around Owen Point are more favorable, so it may turn out better in the end
