Take a Walk, Protect the Trail

Donate $5 and Receive Walk the Distance A.T. App

This offer has now ended. Thank you to everyone who helped support the Appalachian Trail and for the generosity of our partners at Walk the Distance!

Walk the Distance uses your daily steps tracked through your smartphone and converts them to miles hiked on the Trail. You can track where you would currently be on a northbound A.T. hike, and you can see other users completing the same route. Checkpoints along the virtual footpath highlight trivia on iconic views, shelters, ATC projects, and more, providing fun facts and Trail history on your virtual journey!



If you have already purchased the Trail through the app, you can still donate under “Settings” in the app or by visiting appalachiantrail.org/donate. Every dollar helps us protect the A.T. forever for all to enjoy!

Please contact info@appalachiantrail.org with any questions.
