The Appalachian Trail, or AT, which is roughly 2,200 miles long, was my first long-distance hike, in which I thru hiked from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mount Katahdin in Maine during 2011.

While I have both thru hiked and section hiked the Appalachian Trail I do not currently have a lot of content up right now from my many hikes, there are a few videos below if you are interested.

Though the AT isn't a hike that requires a lot of planning, or any at all if you have some experience long-distance hiking, I hope to be adding some resources soon for would be thru hikers.

However, if you'd be interested in my way too personal account of Post Thru Hike Depression following my 2011 Appalachian Trail thru hike... well then, maybe you are going through something similar, and I hope it helps in some way to read my very embarrassing, depressing journal from that time. Just know that things get better, it's always darkest before the dawn, and other clichés, lol.

Or you can check out the story of my 2011 Appalachian Trail thru hike, but be forewarned, Hiking the Appalachian Trail has some grammar, punctuation and spelling errors as it was never meant for wide release.

More logistical information coming soon.

 

Appalachian Trail Section Hike Nobo

This Appalachian Trail Section hike Video Playlist starts with a gear review, hitchhiking to Amicalola Falls from Atlanta (Which is not included due to a faulty camera) and then hiking north through Helen, GA to Siler Bald where I was snowed in for a while. Though I hiked as far as Hot Springs, NC and spent way too much time in Gatlinburg, the camera had finally given up.

Appalachian Trail Section Hike Sobo

This AT Playlist starts with a Megabus ride to Charlottesville, VA to hitchhike to the Appalachian Trail to head southbound. While I had intended on going all the way to Springer Mountain, it was too late in the season and too cold for me. Florida beaches were calling my name.
