  • This book is designed to help those people who are considering hiking the Appalachian Trail but do not know where to start. After reading this book the reader will have a complete understanding on what it takes to undertake such a challenge. Not only will you learn how to properly prepare and determine what equipment to take, you will also be able to follow our state-by-state experiences on the trail. You will learn about the magnificent experiences but also the challenging ones that such an adventure encompasses. I hope to dispel some of the myths concerning hiking the AT and encourage those that are hesitant to take the plunge and get outside.
