“Appalachian Impressions: Hiking the Appalachian Trail” is an epic story about hiking the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. The film takes you on a six-month, 2,173-mile journey along the most famous long-distance hiking trail in the world. Along the way, you’ll meet hikers who have embarked upon this trek, carrying everything they need on their backs. You’ll hear their stories, and experience the thrills and challenges of daily life on the trail. The film covers all fourteen states, the changing of the seasons, footwear, food, shelters, volunteer trail crews and Leave No Trace Ethics. “Appalachian Impressions” captures the true essence of this historic pathway, its interesting characters, beautiful scenery and the generous spirit found in small town America.
This award-winning program has been on PBS since 2004 and is recognized by many as the best Appalachian Trail documentary.
