Hiking the Appalachian Trail Seminar

Hiking the Appalachian Trail

The Appalachian Trail (AT) is a 2,184-mile footpath that runs along the Appalachian Mountains from Georgia to Maine. The trail climbs as high as 6,643 feet and includes the largest alpine environment in the US east of the Rocky Mountains. The AT crosses 14 states, 8 national forests, 6 units of the national park system, and 60 state park, forest, or game lands.


Hear Aaron Hushagen share his experience on last summer's 24-week northbound AT thru-hike.

    Thanks for organizing Sue. Talk was exhilirating albeit a bit long for a weeknight outing. I've been on the AT a teeny bit down in the Smokies. Great fun!

    Not sure who was all there, but Kevin I did see you. I enjoyed this event and found the speaker funny, in a dry sense. It did run a little long for me. I had not idea that Maine was so rocky on the tops of their mountains. Would love to hike different sections of the trail, but know I'm not going to be a "Thru" hiker on the AT.

    I will try to remember to put on a name tag or something referring to Meetup so people can introduce themselves to me. There are many people going that I haven't met and I'd love to meet you. So please introduce yourself to me. Thanks!

    I have a cousin who has a cabin in Pennsylvania and one can catch the AT from his place. Hoping to get to that cabin before he sells it, so this seminar is quite timely for me.
