13th Annual

"ATKO"

(Appalachian Trail Kickoff)

EVER WANTED TO HIKE THE WORLD FAMOUS APPALACHIAN TRAIL...OR JUST LEARN MORE ABOUT IT ?!

MEET LARGER THAN LIFE APPALACHIAN TRAIL AUTHORS, ICONS, VENDORS AND REPS FROM THE APPALACHIAN TRAIL CONSERVANCY AND THE GEORGIA APPALACHIAN TRAIL CLUB - AS THEY CONDUCT SEMINARS, TALK ABOUT THE LATEST GEAR AND IMMERSE YOU IN "EVERYTHING APPALACHIAN TRAIL"!

This event actually runs in entirety from Friday night March 7 thru Sunday night March 9 - AND ALL ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND ANY AND ALL PARTS OF IT - BUT WE ARE HIGHLIGHTING SATURDAY 9-5 AS THE DAY FOR OUR MEETUP. Amicalola Lodge is an inexpensive and wonderful place to stay - but hurry if you want to book a room - as this event has recently gotten HUGE !

There is no fee for this get together and it's a "DO IT YOUR-SELFER" / NO HIKING event. Come to the "Appalachian Wilderness Guides" table when you arrive to pick up your Meetup name badge (and say hi)! - then roam the event at your leisure before returning to the same table at 2:00pm for a special presentation EXCLUSIVE to our Meetup !
