Appalachian Trail 4.5M Microsoft .AVI Video. This is the scene as you enter the trail from Route 183.
The Appalachian Trail is a 2,158-mile (3,480.6 km) footpath along the ridge crests and across the major valleys of the Appalachian Mountains (from Maine and traversing through New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina and Georgia.)
The Trail is managed by volunteers in 32 local clubs under Appalachian Trail Conference auspices through a cooperative agreement with the National Park Service.
The Trail is primarily used by weekend and other short-term hikers. Long distance hikers, known as "Thru-hikers", generally start from Georgia in the early spring and hike the entire length in 5 to 6 months.
The part of the Trail in Schuylkill County passes through Pennsylvania State Game Lands. It is recommended that you plan your trip around hunting seasons and become familiar with local rules prior to your departure. Please remember to take EVERYTHING home that you bring with you to the Trail. You should be responsible for your own trash removal and personal hygiene.
