Appalachian High Route 2023-24

The Appalachian High Route isn't a true trail. It's a string of trails connected to make a loop. Sections of the Appalachian Trail and the Mountains-to-Sea Trail create most of the route, with connectors in and out of Burnsville, N.C.

I began hiking the AHR in the spring of 2023 and was soon joined by my friend Polecat. We hiked most of the route before stopping because of weather and other circumstances. I completed the remaining miles alone in late March 2024.

Reports from this hike are coming soon.
