EMERGENCY PHONE NUMBERS AND PREPARATIONS

The standard emergency number in all areas is 911. Cellular phone coverage is not available all along the trail system, but it is getting better. If you have a cellular phone, carry it in case of an emergency in an area that does have service. As with all trips in the outdoors, it's a good idea to let someone know of your plans.
