Yet, every year, about 3,000 hikers make just such a plan as they set out to walk the entire Appalachian National Scenic Trail (A.T.), from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Katahdin in Maine.
The trail's length varies from time to time, given occasional relocations of some segments. It's currently a 2,186-mile route, and it passes through New Hampshire's White Mountains along the way. Hikers remark on the ruggedness of the terrain and the beauty of the scenery surrounding the trail in the Granite State.
