MILEPOST NOTICE: the OHTA hiking club is replacing all of the mile markers along the OHT and the new mile posts will not match what is listed in this guidebook. The distances in the guide are accurate and will be the same, just the mile post locations will change (due to the new state park location). We will update the guidebook once all of the new posts are in place - hopefully in 2017 perhaps?
