Bushwacking - Is It Right For You?

Section Hiker has a nice post on bushwacking through the back country.

Bushwhacking is a form of off-trail hiking where you need to navigate through dense

Bushwhacking is not for everyone and about 90% of the people who try it for the first time hate it. They think it’s insane. Bulldozing through dense spruce that tears up your clothing and gear, scratches your skin, and makes you bleed is not for the faint of heart.
