Trail Correspondents Episode #18 | Standout Thru-Hiker Stories

Grab a seat next to the rocking chair because today’s show will feature some stories from the backcountry. We instructed our hikers to share a standout tale from their journey. It can be a highlight, lowlight, or something in between. The submissions are a delightful mix. We hear about one of our AT hikers who completed the four-state challenge, one of our correspondents who played a part in rescuing a lost hiker, and another correspondent who had to use their SOS to save another hiker. Murphy’s Law.


Check out Appalachian Trials and Pacific Crest Trials.
