My first trip on the AT was with two of my friends and we did the 75 miles between Troutdale, VA and the Tennessee State Line.
It was a experience that has never let go now ever year I take one of my vacations to hike the AT, I suggest that everyone who loves the outdoors at least do a section hike somewhere on the trail. At the top of Mt. Rogers (Virginias Highest Point) the woods turns into open field that’s full of wild ponies that just roam around without a care in the world.
On the Trail we ran into some of the nicest people who talked to us like we were old friends from suggests on how to make the AT easier to the everyday trials and tribulations of life. It was amazing !!!!!
Chances are that of your on the east coast you have a part of the AT near you somewhere. So take a weekend loop hike!!!! Its sweetover 5 years ago
