Fires have ravaged the southern portions of the Appalachian Trail in Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia. The Trail survived and is open again from Georgia to Maine. Almost all of the burn bans have been lifted.
The Trail has changed forever. That's part of the cycle of life.
Arrests have been made and suspected arsonists are in jail, pending trials.
What's the next step? Well, you're the answer to that question.
The Appalachian Trail will thrive and be vibrant again ... with your help.
We urge you to take the time that you might have spent hiking alone and give it to others who will work with you to maintain, preserve and protect the AT up and down the Trail.
