      With possible exceptions like the C&O section, no pack animals
      are allowed on the AT. This according to a blurb in Wingfoots guide.

      As for hiking with a baby, my concern would be that it's very
      difficult just to take care of one's own needs on a thruhike
      let alone all of someone elses as well. I guess this applies in 
      'real' life also though.
