A word of caution. I know there are a lot of top notch superheros on this forum who can run the HSCT in 9 hours or less, you can ignore this note. This note is for other non-superhero hikers - if you come unprepared for camping with two days food and potable water (filter) supply, you may end up stranded in an emergency shelter at Magnesia Meadows without adequate water and food supply. This happened to our friends last summer, who are physically fit, but they had decided that they could hike the HSCT in one day with a 9 y.o. kid with light day backpacks. Note that the emergency shelter is very small with wooden floors and nothing else to accommodate you for the night and it may be taken by someone else.
