Over the years, we’ve had several team members thru-hike the Appalachian Trail, the nearly 2,200 miles long hike from Georgia to Maine. Two more are looking to become thru-hikers this year by hiking the entire trail in a single season. Join Dylan and Gwyneth as they share what to expect from the A.T. — and what it expects of you.
The clinic will cover all aspects of planning a long-distance hike on the A.T., from essential gear to the diversity of the Trail experience. Participants are encouraged to find their own personal approach to hiking the Trail while also being well-prepared, responsible hikers. Learn about setting expectations, safety, permits and management, alternate routes, and more.
Kids and well-behaved pets with owner on leash are welcome at this free event.
