2000 Milers

Each year, thousands of hikers attempt a thru-hike, only about one in four make it all the way.

In 2016 3,377 thru-hikers started at Springer Mtn, GA.  1,535 made it to Harpers Ferry WV (roughly 1/2 way).  There were 620 completions reported.

There have been 17,510 documented thru-hikes since the Appalachian Trail was formed in 1936.

The number of thru-hikers in their 60’s is fewer than 500.

I am 59 1/2.  Wish me luck!
