Carly Coughlin

Hey guys, what's good? My name is Carly and I’m wicked excited to be sharing my AT adventure with you! I was originally supposed to hike the AT in March of 2021. However, after one glorious season as a snowmaker and a fabulously broken leg, I unfortunately had to postpone until 2022. Patience has never been a virtue of mine but here we are a year later, gearing up to start my NOBO thru-hike of the AT! I grew up in Boston and spent the better part of the last five years in upstate New York exploring the Adirondacks with my university's outing club. It was here I developed a deep love of all things outdoors, including backpacking, skiing, and climbing. A few fun facts about me: My favorite summit snack is a cucumber, I’m a type one diabetic, and I am a firm proponent of carrying peanut butter in a Ziploc bag while backpacking. Happy trails!
