Social Media and Comment Guidelines

Our website and social media channels are a place to celebrate and discuss the Appalachian Trail (A.T.) and its community of doers and dreamers.

We strive to create an ever-expanding community of A.T. supporters and work to ensure that tomorrow’s generations will experience the same mesmerizing beauty we behold today. On all of our platforms, we provide and foster a forum that is open and welcoming to many viewpoints and opinions, and we are committed to nurturing and protecting this space through education and inspiration.

Expectations and Guidelines:

Our social media channels and sections of our website are places where our fans can comfortably share information and experiences about the A.T. with one another.

  • While these are open forums, they are also family-friendly, so please keep your comments and wall posts clean and appropriate.
  • We do not allow graphic, obscene, or explicit comments.
  • Challenge ideas and opinions, but refrain from attacks against groups or individuals. We do not allow comments that are abusive, hateful, or intended to defame anyone or any organization.
  • Comments should be relevant to the post or page topic.
  • Do not solicit or market products or services.
  • Repeated posts or comments may be treated as SPAM and deleted.

We reserve the right to monitor and remove comments or postings that violate these terms.
