Description: Join REI Staffer and Thru-Hiker Tom "Tom A. Hawk" Cline and learn the basics of what you will need to know to get started hiking the Appalachian Trail.

We'll teach you the logistics behind a hiking or backpacking trip. We'll focus on trip planning skills for: day hikes, section hikes, and thru hikers.

    This was a terrific lecture by an AT through-hiker. He offered up some thoughtful trail wisdom, told a few stories and broke down his pack for us. Very insightful...

    I tried signing up but the class says full... I'm on the wait list. Are you guys meeting before you go in or just going? Hope a spot opens up! :)

      Hi Jamie, I think that I'm going to skip the gear review this weekend. Even if this class is fully, if its close to you, let's perhaps meet there anyway. I am signed up and you (and anyone else in this group) can be my guests. If they don't let us in we can have our own AT gear discussion.

      Hi, yeah I never received an email saying that there was a free spot, being on the waitlist, so I made other plans. That REI is about 45min away. But I think it's a good idea for a future meet up.
