10/6/2012 - We backpacked this southern SNP section of the Appalachian Trail heading north. A re-route of the A.T. over Calf Mountain was completed in August 2012. The A.T. re-route now takes you directly through the lower peak with its great views. The spur trail mentioned is now part of the A.T. The re-route was really well done and has made the climb up Calf Mtn not as strenuous as the old section. The old section has been blocked off with appropriate signs/blazes to lead you to the new route.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
