Congratulations to This Week’s Appalachian Trail Thru-Hikers! (Week of 8.28.2016)

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 AppalachianTrials.com!

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.

    Whenever I see the list of the thru-hikers it makes me smile and I even get a little teary-eyed. I know none of the thru-hikers at this point and am hoping to see my ‘niece’ soon but each picture I look at makes me think that had I known about the trail years ago I would have liked to have hiked it.

    You all are awesome!
