Chloë de Camara

Hi there! The name's Chloë. Born in Chicago, but claim western North Carolina as my home. I caught the A.T. "bug" while writing my thesis for the Religious Studies department of UNC-Asheville--I argued that thru-hiking the A.T. could be seen as a new form of religion. I started volunteering with the ATC shortly after I received my diploma and have never looked back. I completed my A.T. thru-hike on August 13th, 2015, and am forever changed. Starting mid-February I'll be back on the Trail as a short-term (18 weeks) ridge runner in the Smokies. Then I'll transition into the role of camp coordinator, working with volunteers coming out for S.W.E.A.T. and Rocky Top trail crews!

My Long-Term Relationship with the Appalachian Trail

When I say I lucked out, I mean I really lucked out. As you probably know, the Appalachian Trail travels about 2,200 miles from Springer Mountain
