Strain made perfect sense after-the-fact, but I probably would have blurted "strength" just to say something. Even the elimination of "stress" and "stretch" in the clue didn't help.
"Stress" plus "length" made it hard not to think of "strength". Or "less".

Writers, since when is the Appalachian Trail considered on the east coast?
It goes through a number of East Coast states.

And it's in an east coast country (I don't know how the clue read. But I do see potential for it to have been a bad clue).
