Appalachian Trail Hike- CT Section
LAST DAY TO REGISTER: 7/27/2022
Would you like to say, "I hiked the Appalachian Trail?" The "AT", as it is commonly known, is a scenic trail system that covers 2,190 miles in 14 states between Georgia and Maine.
Some hikers attempt to cover the entire trail in a single hiking season. Others prefer to hike a section or two at a time.
On this trip, we will cover a little more than half of the 53 miles that cross through our state!
We will gather at the trailhead in West Cornwall for a gear inspection to ensure everyone is prepared before we head out on our five-day/four-night adventure.
We plan to cover approximately five to seven miles per day, on often hilly terrain.
Space is limited to Seniors and Ambassadors, as we will observing responsible "Leave No Trace" principles of minimal impact hiking and camping.
Girls must be well acquainted with their gear and be able to carry their gear over a distance.
Girls will also be asked to bring the meals they intend to eat.
It is not necessary to purchase new gear, some can be borrowed or shared. Girls must also be comfortable with primitive camping.
