Multi-Day Hiking

If you have more time on your hands, or want to complete the Trail in larger chunks, then a multi-day hike of the Appalachian Trail is just what nature ordered. Multi-day hiking spans from spending an overnight on the Appalachian Trail to hiking every part of it through a series of multi-day hikes over many years. For more information, check out appalachiantrail.org.
