For those of you who are still preparing, about to step off, or who are already on the Appalachian Trail, here is the best summary of what you can expect that I’ve seen.
Because this summary speaks for itself, anything I add here will only tend to dilute the information in it. Scroll through and see for yourself. Whether you are thru-hiking, section hiking, or just out for the day on the A.T., this info will help you. Happy Trails!
