Before we were a family, one of my adventures was thru-hiking the historic Appalachian Trail, and I highly recommend it to others seeking a backpacking challenge.
In fact, the spirit of the Appalachian Trail is the foundation of Adventure Possible’s mission to help others live their personal adventures.
The Appalachian Trail is the most historic footpath in America, stretching about 2,160 miles (it varies) from Mount Katahdin, Maine to Springer Mountain, Georgia. The path crosses 13 states as it winds up, down, and around the Appalachian Mountains.
Thousands of adventurers attempt the storied Appalachian Trail thru-hike adventure each year, and millions more hit the Appalachian Trail for day hikes and shorter camping trips each year.
I was fortunate to successfully thru-hike the Appalachian Trail, and I strive to share my knowledge and passion of the Appalachian Trail to help others plan, pay for, and experience the Appalachian Trail thru-hike adventure. Here’s every blog post from my Appalachian Trail thru-hike.
Below you will find backpacking tips, budgeting calculators, and checklists related to hiking the Appalachian Trail.
