Take the AT 2019 Thru-Hiker Survey

Have you attempted an Appalachian Trail thru-hike in 2019?  If so, we want to hear from you!

Each year, The Trek gathers information from the current class of Appalachian Trail thru-hikers to learn all about their journeys.  The survey turns up data about hiker demographics, prior backpacking experience, budget, favorite resources, gear used, water treatment practices, and much more.  The numbers for the survey are crunched, dissected, polished, rehydrated, and published for the public to enjoy.

If you attempted a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail this year (2019), take the AT Hiker Survey here.

The deadline for NOBOs and flip-floppers to take the survey is November 1.  SOBOs can take the survey until January 15.
