Over two days we will backpack 22.3 miles of the 83 miles of Appalachian Trail in New York. We will start at the Appalachian Station on Rt 22 in Pawling and end at Long Hill Road.

This is not a beginner event. There will be no sweep. Hikers may have to navigate on their own and should be prepared to do so.

***Please Read the Entire Description before you RSVP.***

Hike your Own Hike:

While we will do our best to stay together, not everyone will be comfortable walking the same speed while carrying a full pack. We will most likely break up into small teams. During the day, we will attempt to stay in touch with each other using cell phones at fixed intervals, but service is expected to be spotty. We will camp together at night. Please be prepared with your own map. Please study the map ahead of time and know the route. and bailout points in case you need to get off the trail.

All participants must be prepared with their own minimum equipment for backpacking. You must either bring your own gear or plan ahead to share with someone. Although we will be camping at a shelter site with a privy, please do not plan on having access to these facilities. BE PREPARED.
