SAT and the AT

while bemoaning my fate of taking a gruesome, agonizing
standardized test when i could be off in a total random
part of the country meeting people i admire (i.e. at the 
Gathering), i came across a question on a practice test that
all those miles of hiking up and down mountains will be now useful,
at least to the common idea of usefulness.

23. excluding rest stops, it took juanita a total of 10
hours to hike from the base of a mountain to the top
and back down again by the same path (could this be Katahdin?).
if while hiking she averaged 2 miles per hour going up and
3 miles per hour going down, how many miles was it from the
base to the top?
