Appalachian Trail Statistics from ATC

In the 33 years between 1936 and 1969, only 59 Appalachian Trail thru-hikers were recorded by the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. Only ten people made the whole trek in 1970.

In 2011, 1,700 people of all ages headed north from Springer Mountain in Georgia.

Do you know how many made it to Harper's Ferry -- about halfway to Mount Katahdin? Ever wondered what percentage of voyagers make it all the way to Maine?

Well, wonder no more. Our friends at ATC have compiled the latest trail statistics for us. The results are fascinating.

We hope you'll follow in the footsteps of those who gave their hearts and soles to the Appalachian Trail.
