Appalachian Trail

The AT is marked by white blazes
Curious about the Appalachian Trail?  These are links to more info:

Appalachian Trail Conservancy - Organization formed to take care of the trail - it's called America's Trail, because it is mostly taken care of by volunteers - The hiker's site for everything you need to know to prepare for a hike of the AT - Virtual Hike the AT in 5 minutes - short documentary about thru-hikers.  Many of these summited last year
The AT Guide - a book that most hikers take along on the hike
The Appalachian Trail on Netflix!  This movie is a great documentary about the AT
Youtube video made by thru-hiker when he reached the half-way point of the AT- too much fun not to share! (Do yourselves a favor, and turn up the volume) - Site where hikers keep trail journals of their hikes, for the AT, and many other hikes around the world.  I decided not to use this site for our AT hike, but did try it out after our 4-day OHT hike, so if you would like to read the details of that hike, or check out the thousands of other hiking journals, you can go here:
