Appalachian National Scenic Trail
The Appalachian Trail is one of the longest marked trails in the United States of America, with a length of more than 3,200 km that passes through 14 states. The route begins in the north of Maine at Mt. Katahdin and ends as far south as Mt. Springer at Georgia State. You will pass through the following states: Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. In total, this trail passes through two national parks and eight national forests or primeval forests.
In order to cover the whole track, you have to take about 5 million steps, which sometimes takes you only a few months, but also three quarters of a year. Tens of thousands of people go here every year to test their strength and their ability to survive in the wild. The route completely avoids all metropolises. Every year, about 150 of the most persistent individuals manage to conquer the entire route, other people only choose individual shorter sections of the trail.
Thanks to numerous groups of enthusiasts, the trail is very well maintained. It is cared for not only by individuals, but also by various clubs in the United States led by rangers and volunteers. Since you are literally wandering through the wilderness on the route, you have to take into account almost everything here. With the number of kilometers traveled, the landscape around you changes, but so do the flora and fauna characteristic of individual sections. You can meet a lot of moose and bears here.
On the route, you must also expect that you will often ford rivers, cut through thick bushes or climb steep slopes. Sometimes you will emerge in civilization in the form of a mountain village, where you will have the opportunity to gain strength and replenish supplies. Whoever manages to conquer the entire Appalachian Trail has the experience of a lifetime. For some, this trek is a great challenge, for others it is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. A 52-mile trail crosses the state of Connecticut, crosses the Bear River, winds through the wooded hill country of the Taconic Range, and heads down into the Housatonic River Valley.
