In this hike series, we are taking on the longest hiking-only footpath in the world – one section at a time. And this is our first overnight trip! That’s right – we’ll drive up on Saturday, hike, spend a night in a hotel, then hike Sunday, and head back home. On Day 1, we’ll start in Massachusetts and summit Mt. Everett. Then, it’s on to Connecticut where we’ll make our way past multiple waterfalls – beautiful, spring hike in the forest. Day 2 will be a recovery day, with shorter mileage and less elevation. We will finish up our weekend with a section Connecticut section starting at the gorgeous Great Falls.

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!

Accommodations: Shared hotel room with other person. Single rooms available for an extra $75 fee.
