Appalachian Trail Reviews
Thru-Hiking - NorthBound - Georgia to Maine Mar 10, 2011
For between $100 to $200 per week you can hike the entire Appalachian Trail. Best experience money can buy!
Starting a few hours North of Atlanta, Georgia, the trail begins on Springer Mountain.
Shelters abound on the 2200 mile long trail. Every 8 to 20 miles expect to find a shelter or lean-to to help the weary hiker stay out of the elements.
Also, expect to lose between 20 and 70 pounds over the course of 6 months (at 12 miles a day).
Trail Friends are also plentiful, as the AT (Appalachian Trail) is one of the most social trails on the planet.
Good luck, and happy adventuring!
