50 Years Ago

50-years ago the National Trails Act was signed into existence by Lyndon Johnson. This Act created the first two National Scenic Trails; the Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail.

Here's what it's like to hike the Appalachian Trail distilled down to just 5-minutes. If you think about it - Sam and Frodo basically traveled the distance of the AT going from the Shire to Mount Doom in The Lord of the Rings (love that little tidbit).

I've always wanted to thru-hike the AT. Someday...
