I grew up close to the Appalachian Trail and that’s where my first ever backpacking trip took place.
Long story short, that trip sparked within me a passion for both the AT and of backpacking.
Now, I feel it is my mission is to inspire a love of the Appalachian Trail in the next generation so it can be here for years to come.
Why we should inspire a love of the AT in children:
Protect the trail itself and the wonderful and unique views
Keep it wild

Preserve this piece of history
Allow future generations to walk the same path
