APPALACHIAN TRAIL – DAILY LOG

This trail log follows the Appalachian Trail from South to North and from Georgia to Maine.  I hiked nearly 2000 miles on the A.T. in 1994 (which measured 2155 miles at the time.)

Since then, I have returned to complete the remaining miles and you will see that reflected in the dates for each log entry. The “Total Mileage” tracks the A.T. as it was listed in the 1995 Thru-Hiker Handbook.  The “Daily Mileage” tracks the miles that I hiked each day including any “bonus” miles to a shelter, town, vista, etc.

The red links will take you to a journal of my 1994 thru-hike or to a landing page for A.T. sections that I hiked at a later date.  This is a work in progress, but I hope to have it completed by 2019 – the 25th anniversary of my hike.
