Appalachian Trail
Description:
A hiking path in the eastern part of the United States extending about 3,298 km (2,050 mi) from Mount Katahdin in central Maine to Springer Mountain in northern Georgia. It is the world's longest continuous mountain trail.

GCAC87
Expanded Description:
I would love to thru-hike the AT one day, but that's not quite possible right now. I dayhike frequently near my home in Virginia that's how I came up with this idea.
Instructions for Posting a Appalachian Trail Waymark:
  • Find a directional or mileage sign on the AT. Take a picture of it with your GPS. Document the coordinates at the sign.
  • An alternative to #1 is to find a trail head, and take a picture of the AT sign/logo that designates the trailhead. Same thing applies with the coordinates.
  • A third thing I'd like for you to do, if possible is to note the name of the nearest town. If you can, take a picture of their sign or post office.
  • A fourth option is to find a shelter on the AT, take a picture of yourself or your GPS (if you're like me and hate having pictures take of you.) Document the coordinates for the shelter.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
You must include one of the above photo types and coordinates of where your photo was taken. If you have any questions, please feel free to email.
