The Appalachian Trail is a 2,100 mile hike along the Appalachian Mountains Stretching from Georgia to Maine through 14 states.
Over 3,000 people attempt to “thru-hike” the entire footpath in a single year. Roughly %75 do not finish.
The elevation change on the Trail is the equivalent of completing Everest 16 times.
The original ideas for both the Appalachian Trail and the Long Trail were conceived atop the same mountain.
