From Georgia to Maine, the Appalachian Trail stretches 2,162.3 miles (3,479.9 km) up and over every hill on the east coast of the United States of America. At least that was the length in 1997 when I began my hike. Many thanks go to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (formerly Appalachian Trail Conference) for the data used to make this map.
