The Appalachian Trail (A.T.) is a hiking trail in the eastern United States, extending almost 2,200 miles (3,540 km) between Springer Mountain in Georgia and Mount Katahdin in Maine. It passes through 14 states: Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. According to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) the A.T is the longest hiking-only trail in the world. More than three million people hike segments of the trail each year.
The A.T. is maintained by 31 trail clubs and multiple partnerships - including AMC - and is managed by the National Park Service, United States Forest Service, and the nonprofit ATC. Most of the trail traverses forest or wild lands, although some portions cross towns, roads, and farms.
