A collection of resources for hikers to stay safe, healthy, and responsible on the Appalachian Trail.
Whether on the footpath itself or on Capitol Hill, obstacles arise every day that threaten the Appalachian Trail. We’re here to protect it. Learn how the ATC stands up for the Trail and its surrounding landscape — and how you can help.
Volunteer opportunities are limited at this time due to COVID-19.
If you hike the Trail in 2021, proper planning and preparation will help ensure everyone’s A.T. experiences are safe, healthy, responsible, and successful.
