Trail Days was first held in the late 80’s to celebrate hiker culture and the 50th anniversary of the Appalachian Trail’s completion.  The event has grown exponentially since then and now serves as a homecoming for thru-hikers and for those that are passionate about the A.T. 

This year I celebrated the 25th anniversary of my 1994 thru-hike with some backpackers that I met on the A.T. and some friends that I hike with frequently in Georgia and North Carolina.  This is a montage of the photos and video from that weekend – leading off with the annual parade through downtown Damascus, Virginia.
