How many miles was the ho chi minh trail?

Almost 10,000 miles of roads, trails, and waterways which created a "system" of routes leading into the RVN (Republic of South Vietnam). The trail was NOT just a single trail (route) as the name would suggest; rather a road (or route system) system. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I don't think there is any way possible you could get an accurate count on how long the trail was. when I was over there in 1969 my unit did missions close or sometime on the trail entering it from different points. when it was all said and done we hadn't seen a third of the trail. one reason is that the ho chi minh trail cut into Laos and Cambodia also. but as the above stated the trail was not a single trail but a vast vast net work of trails. you had branches leading off or dissecting the supposedly main trail then you had branches leading off from the secondary ones. I think this was so due to the bombing the us did over the years on the trail. each time we would carry out an air strike ( most times with b52's carrying 500 to 100 lb bombs and they can carry about 80 of them) the NV army with the help of the vc would simply relocate the trail that is one of the reasons I think why it had so many networks or branches
