The "Could you Hike the Appalachian Trail?" Test

  • Every year, thousands of "thru-hikers" set out to walk from Georgia to Maine on the Appalachian Trail.* About one in four makes it. Could you be that one?


    Although this test is for fun, it's based on real observations of long-distance hikers on the AT. The results should let you know if thru-hiking is for you.


    * A smaller number do the reverse--hiking from Maine to Georgia.
