Aspiring thru-hikers often wonder about the costs to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail, and one of the top reasons that thru-hikers fail to finish the AT is running out of money.
We have covered costs to hike the Appalachian Trail in another article, and here we’re publishing a new tool that will help hikers understand costs and avoid money problems on the AT.
Let us bring you adventure every day.

Download the Appalachian Trail backpacking checklist and budgeting tool
We’ve built a tool that combines a backpacking gear checklist and budgeting tool into a single Excel worksheet that helps aspiring thru hikers create a realistic budget for an Appalachian Trail thru-hike.
In the latest version, thanks to the feedback from one of our users, we’ve also added a feature to calculate pack weight.
If you have any problems downloading or using the spreadsheet, please let us know so that we can improve it.
