It’s roughly 2,190 miles and 14 states of grueling work and unforgettable sites.
With everything from the southern hospitality in Georgia all the way through exquisite mountain ranges to Baxter State Park in Maine, it’s no wonder that the Appalachian Trail has three million visitors every single year.
Now, before you strap on your hiking boots and hit the trail, there are some factors that you should be aware of.
First of all, it takes roughly five to seven months to actually hike the entire trail. Only about 25% of people that set out to hike all the way through actually make it.
However, don’t let that devastate you. There are options for day hikes and shorter excursions.
And if you’re too lazy to even leave the couch or you need a little extra piece of motivation, these photos will take you through the Appalachian Trail.
