    Presi Traverse?

    I am pretty certain you'll be able to find someone interested in doing the Pemi with you on this forum, and I would guess that most here are very familiar with the trails around the wilderness.

    I do have the AMC guide though, and I browse through it, although hikes seem more interesting on here with pictures and TR's than the Guide makes them seem. ...
