Has the thought of thru-hiking one of the country’s long trails ever crossed your mind? If so, I’d suggest joining us at ‘The Gathering,’ an annual event held by ALDHA, the Appalachian Long Distance Hikers Association. This is a great opportunity to learn about long distance hiking and get a glimpse of what life is like on the trail. We’ll talk with people who have hiked the entire Appalachian Trail, watch presentations, and participate in workshops. For more information about The Gathering, please look through the materials on their website which can be found through the links below.

-An eagerness to learn about The Trail
-money for food (friday’s dinner, all meals saturday and sunday)
