The Trek’s Appalachian Trail Bloggers You Should Be Following on Instagram

Each new thru-hiking season, The Trek enlists a squad of hiker trash to share their stories with us while tagging white blazes along the spine of Appalachia. We have selected a diverse feature set of 25 bloggers from this squadron that will surely deliver you photography and prose during their journey. Follow along to live vicariously, send positive vibes, track progress, and gain inspiration for a hike of your own.

During their trek’s, our bloggers will be using #TrekTheAT and #TheTrek to tag their posts on Instagram. Be sure to keep an eye on these hashtags as well as give our main pages a follow via @appalachian.trail and

Hope your clicker finger is ready, it’s time to go on a follow rampage. In all their trashy glory; our AT Bloggers:
