The Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) announces classes for people with interest in hiking the Appalachian Trail (A.T.). Courses provide future long-distance hikers with knowledge for a well-prepared hike on the A.T.  These courses are taught by ATC staff themselves. Your personal approach to hiking the A.T. should be different than the next guy (or gal!).  Join us for an informative workshop on all aspects of planning for a long distance hike on the A.T. — from the essential gear to the diversity of the A.T. experience. Bring your big dreams and questions to learn from experienced hikers. You’ll be more confident as you put your best foot forward to reach your goals on the A.T.

The workshop will be from 6:00-7:30 p.m. at the Greenville, SC REI. Pre-registration is required, and workshop is free. Click here to sign up.

    Hi Nigel,

    These classes are popular and tend to fill up. I would say that the courses bring out a variety of hiking experiences, from never having stepped foot on the A.T. to planning a thru-hike.

    Questions also range from class to class. I would some some of the most common questions are:

    "Do you feel safe hiking alone as a woman?"

    "What are the options for resupplies along the Trail?"

    "Can you bring a dog on the A.T.?"

    "Do I need a permit to hike the A.T."

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other specific questions regarding these workshops.

    Happy Trails!

    Hi, ATC Staff! This sounds like great classes that can really make a difference in way hikes experience trail itself. I was wondering, are they popular among hikers who are planning to go on this adventure and what are most popular questions you get from them?
