Congratulations to these 2023 Appalachian Trail Thru-Hikers: Part 10

Nestled within the heart of the Eastern United States lies a legendary ribbon of wilderness known to adventurers far and wide—the Appalachian Trail (AT). Stretching a colossal 2,190 miles, this trail meanders through the beautiful Appalachian Mountains.

The AT’s story begins at the southernmost point, Springer Mountain in Georgia, and unfolds through 14 states, taking hikers on a journey that culminates at the summit of Mount Katahdin in Maine. Along this winding path, nature unfurls its splendor in myriad forms, from the lush forests of the southern ranges to the granite peaks of New England, showcasing its rich beauty for those with an adventurous spirit.

Yet, the AT is not only about landscapes; it’s about the tales it weaves and the adventurers who embrace its challenges. And today, we gather to celebrate a remarkable group of thru-hikers who’ve just completed this monumental feat!

Did you complete a thru-hike of the AT this year and want to be featured along your fellow long distance superstars?  Here’s your chance.  Please fill out the below form if you’d like to be included in an upcoming AT thru-hiker roundup post on The Trek.
