Congrats to These 2021 Appalachian Trail Thru-Hikers: Week of November 29

Look at all these beautiful people! It warms the heart to see so many intrepid hikers braving every torrential thunderstorm, hand-over-foot climb, and national park crowd to finish the AT.

Whether this is your first thru-hike or you’ve added another notch to your long-distance backpacking belt, your accomplishment deserves to be celebrated. Because remember: despite its length, the Appalachian Trail still boasts more elevation gain and loss than either of America’s other two long trails. Show those calves off. You earned it.

Did you thru-hike the AT this year? Follow this link to submit your terminus photo, finishing date, and any other relevant information and we will be sure to include it in our next roundup.
