Backpacking Miscellaneous Resources
Appalachian Trail Home Page -
The Appalachian Trail is a continuous marked footpath that goes from Katahdin in
Maine to Springer Mountain in Georgia, a distance of about 2160 miles. Many
trace the origins of the Trail to a
1921 article by Benton
MacKaye entitled An Appalachian Trail: A Project in Regional Planning.
Lightweight Backpacker - If you
engage in backpacking, at some point, you may consider packing a lighter load.
That consideration was the main reason this website was created in 1996, and it
continues to be its primary focus.
