Appalachian Trail


appalachianTrailLocation:
North Georgia Mountains

About:
The Appalachian Trail Conservancy upholds the highest standards for the protection and management of the Appalachian Trail (A.T.) to ensure that it can be shared and enjoyed well into the future. Due to the Trail’s historic legacy of volunteerism, many of the ATC’s programs are focused on supporting and encouraging volunteers. We work cooperatively with volunteer A.T. clubs and agencies to develop meaningful Trail policies, share expertise on trail design and construction, and protect the landscapes and natural and cultural resources that represent the unique, inspiring, and oftentimes life changing, experience of the A.T.

Our newer initiatives help us reach out to the next generation of A.T. supporters and visitors through education and outreach programs. As we work to steward the valuable lands that the A.T. traverses, we are eager to ensure those protected lands remain relevant and available to all those seeking recreation and solitude on the Trail.
While the Appalachian Trail is a study in strength, perseverance, and remarkable beauty, the small towns of Blairsville and Suches in Union County are havens of good food, family entertainment, hot showers, and comfortable beds! We are very proud to be designated as an Appalachian Trail Community!
