See the 2,200 mile Appalachian Trail in under five minutes.

This brings back a lot of memories of my own short (I wasn’t a through-hiker) Appalachian Trail adventures. But even if you’ve never put a boot to the ground on this landmark, this video will give you a look at what it’s like to hike it. Of course, what it doesn’t do is show the toil of endless hiking, the joys of looking out over the eastern states from a bald peak or instill the camaraderie of meeting people experiencing the same 2,200 mile strip of dirt that you are.
