In this hike series, we are taking on the longest hiking-only footpath in the world – one section at a time. This section – Culvers Gap to Sunrise Mountain – is a shorter section of the trail, so we are combining it with a visit to a local brewery. Because this is a point-to-point hike, there is no need to double-back. It’s only the Appalachian Trail, and it’s new places all day long. Come explore the AT with us (and enjoy some craft beers)!

NOTE: This trip is rated INTERMEDIATE+.
