And the 2024 Appalachian Trail length is 🥁...2,197.4 miles, making the A.T. one mile shorter than in 2023! The total length of the A.T. typically changes slightly each year due to footpath relocations and more precise measurement techniques.

Learn more about the sections that changed this year and how those changes will impact the total mileage for the Trail in 2024! https://appalachiantrail.org/news/appalachian-trail-becomes-one-mile-shorter-in-2024/

Another great hike this weekend along the AT in NY. The mosquitoes were worse than I’d ever encountered…I’m a little itchy right now.

Hiked another 26 miles in central NY. Experienced the fiercest, most relentless, mosquitoes I’ve ever seen! One more small section left and NY will be complete. Also saw Ultra Runner Kristian Morgan on his Appalachian Trail fastest known time attempt. He currently holds #2 at 44d 4h 54m.

Thank you so much for following along on our journey hiking the Appalachian Trail and being a part of our adventure! The channel has reached nearly 3000 subscribers this year and we’ve met so many amazing people! I hope everyone has an amazing 2023!

This year was a tough grind to finally get Virginia completed. It took nearly 5 years of working at it, through the good and bad, and it’s finally done. The Virginia Blues are real! I also did something that I had not done before – two, week long trips. The 1st was to Hike all of Georgia AT, and the second was to hostel hop the Southern section of VA. Having completed both, I now have hiked a continuous path from the NY/NJ border all the way to the VA/TN border and also completed GA and the Presidentials. We met a lot a great people on the trail and got to hike some distance with fellow hiking YouTube and Instagram Vloggers. There were cold days, and many ugly hot days…and of course some wet days too. We did not make it to NH this year – maybe in 2023, we’ll see. I can’t believe the year is over already. Happy New Year to everyone! Hikers Hike!
