I know this is distressing to contemplate, but there’s been some talk lately (in the Appalachian Long Distance Hiker’s Association Group on Facebook) about the increased use of Crystal methamphetamine and other hard drugs on the Appalachian Trail.
Have you encountered thru-hikers or others using drugs and/or abusing alcohol on the Appalachian Trail, in trail towns, or on other National Scenic Trails? How prevalent is it and how has it affected your hikes?
