The Appalachian Trail is the country’s most famous footpath. Stretching 2,189 miles from Maine to Georgia, it attracts three million hikers each year—including over 2,000 thru-hikers. That number is expected to grow with the release of the Hollywood blockbuster A Walk in the Woods starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte. Will crowds swamp the A.T. or help save it?
BRO’s Appalachian Trail Guide examines the past, present, and future of the A.T.—including interviews and video of inspiring trail personalities, colorful thru-hikers, speed record holder Scott Jurek, and homegrown heroes like Jennifer Pharr Davis. We highlight the trail’s iconic landmarks and feature the trail communities and clubs working to protect the beloved green ribbon of trail.
