Appalachian Trail Home
Celebrating its 30th birthday in January 2024!

The Appalachian Trail is a continuous marked footpath that goes from Katahdin in Maine to Springer Mountain in Georgia, a distance of about 2160 miles. Many trace the origins of the Trail to a 1921 article by Benton MacKaye entitled An Appalachian Trail: A Project in Regional Planning.

I'd be interested to hear which parts of the page you found most useful. Or, if you come across links to places in the vicinity of the Trail that might be useful for inclusion, please tell me. Send comments and suggestions to me at kathy at the domain
