Appalachian National Scenic Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This 2,175-mile hiker filament strings along the Appalachian mountain chain from Mount Katahdin, Maine, to Springer Mountain, Georgia. More than 50 miles of prime Connecticut countryside advance the trail, including 5 uninterrupted miles on the west bank of the Housatonic River—one of the longest river-paired stretches on the entire Appalachian Trail (AT).

You’ll discover multistate views, waterfalls, and historic stone walls, canals, and towns. Between the drive-to trailheads at Under Mountain and Bulls Bridge, you can hike 48 miles of the Connecticut AT."
