This online planning guide is intended to offer a sense of what to expect on the Grand Enchantment Trail, so that you may then compare the route to other hiking experiences and assess your level of preparedness. It will also allow you to determine how and when to hike, in which direction, and how to resupply yourself along the way. Although written primarily with the thru-hiker in mind, much of this information is also pertinent to section hikers and weekend backpackers. Regardless of your plans, read this trek planner first, then continue on to the G.E.T. Guidebook and Town Guide to get specific information about each route segment and resupply point along the way.
