The kids learned about this in school today.  I've always wanted to hike it.  It's something on my bucket list.


Has anyone in this group hiked it all or in part?  I'd love to hear about it.  Where did you start/finish?   What kind of wildlife did you encounter?

That is so cool! How long did it take him? What section did you hike?

It took him 6 months. He has also hiked the Pacific crest which is Mexico to Canada through California Oregon and Washington.

I have only hiked locally on the AT. Georiga, NC and VA sections. I would love to do it one day when the kids are older.
