Appalachian Impression is an epic story about hiking the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. The program takes you on a six-month, 2,180-mile journey along the most famous long-distance hiking trail in the world. Along the way, you'll meet hikers who have embarked on this trek, carrying everything they need on their backs. You'll hear their stories, and experience the thrills and challenges of daily life on the Trail. The program covers all fourteen states, the changing of the seasons, footwear, food, shelters, volunteer trail crews, and Leave No Trace Ethics.
