Plan and Prepare

Hiker Preparation Webinar Series

Considering an A.T. hike in 2021? It’s more important than ever to be prepared.

Starting December 3, ATC staff will host live, virtual sessions on Thursdays to share the most essential information for the 2021 hiking season. Each session will begin with a brief overview of logistics, gear, leave no trace skills, and safety – including special considerations for the COVID-19 era. Sessions with a special theme will cover that topic in more detail, and each session wraps up with a moderated Q & A period. Sign up for the session that interests you the most, or the one that fits your schedule the best – or join us for multiple sessions. We look forward to sharing our perspective as experienced long distance hikers and trail managers during these uncertain times.
