Congratulations to This Week’s Appalachian Trail Thru-Hikers! (Week of 8.15.2016)

It’s that time of year again!

The time where thru-hikers are crossing the finish line; 2,189 miles of joy, blood, sweat, tears, and ice cream. Thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail is a truly monumental achievement- and we want to showcase your glory right here on!

If you’ve completed your thru-hike, send us your Katahdin summit photos (or Springer for our SOBOs / wherever you end for the flip-floppers).  Email us your photos here and be sure to include your Trail Name and completion date.
