The Appalachian Trail...

The Appalachian Trail is about 2200 miles in length and runs from north Georgia to central Maine.   It generally follows the spine of the Appalachian Mountains.

The Trail is managed by a combination of the National Park Service, the US Forest Service, and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.   It is maintained by a host of nonprofit organizations.

Sometimes called "The Long Green Tunnel", it is mostly under the cover of trees.   It can be very harsh in ascents, descents, and the rockiness of the trail.

Only a small percentage of those who attempt a thru-hike are able to complete the trail.
