While bears are located all along the Appalachian trail, in most sections they are rarely seen. During prime season there is enough use of the trail that hikers are often aware of problematic areas. This is especially true at shelters. Mice, raccoons, and other smaller animals are much more bothersome. My understanding is that the PCT bear hang method is designed to keep bears from getting your food.
Are there modifications that should be made to a PCT hang to prevent rodents and small animals from getting the food?
If you are not worried about bears, but are worried about small animals, how should you hang your food?
