Appalachian Trail documentary screening "The Climb to Katahdin" at Shelby Park

Join us with the movie’s creator for a screening of the new documentary, "The Climb to Katahdin." Devoted couple from Louisiana, Lindsay and Coltin, and their Catahoula dog Chaser, hit America's oldest footpath, the Appalachian Trail, for a six month adventure in the mountains. 

The A.T., as it's called, stretches from Georgia to Maine and spans over 2,100 miles. It is many adventurers' dream to complete the trek in one large journey. But there's much more to the A.T. than the couple expected. The community, the trials and tribulations, the pain, and the rain are all things that are brought to light and experienced first hand.

Featuring a unique dogs-eye-view and an incredibly intimate closeness to the couple and the Trail unlike any adventure film, watch as they traverse their way to Maine and fully submerge themselves into the Trail culture.


Click here for a Google Map of the Nature Center parking lot location. Click on "Parking at the Nature Center/Greenway" and then you can get directions from your starting point through Google Maps. Give yourself extra time to find the Nature Center if you've never been to Shelby Park. Once you get into Shelby Park, follow the signs for the Shelby Bottoms Greenway/Nature Center. The overhead train trestle is the landmark you're looking for.

    Having done portions of the At and climbed a few hours on the way to Katahdin. I would love to attend. BUT, I do not drive at night so would gladly carpool with someone if I could meet them near my home in Lebanon. I 'm off Cairo Bend/Twin Cove Drive if someone want to contact me. Thanks
