Appalachian Trail Map
(Click image for full size)
I did this all the first few days I was home.. haven't been on my computer at all since then, but here's what I found.
On my phone, I kept track of every extra tenth of a mile I hiked since day 1. I only counted mileage hiked with my pack and boots on. There was certainly some walking around towns that I didn't count with just my camp shoes and no pack. Some days I didn't do any extra hiking like when I camped on the side of the trail and when shelters were directly on the trail. Other days I did several miles of extra walking when I decided to take a side trail or had to walk into or out of a town.
Total mileage hiked: 2,259.1
Which makes for a total of almost 70 miles of extra hiking.
I've attached a picture of the graph of my daily mileage. I deleted the zeroes and a few of the short neros because it was a little too noisy with them in there.
You can see my mileage decrease as I enter The Whites and southern Maine, then increase again as I start heading south.
Merry Christmas to all!
The Appalachian Trail (A.T.) is more than 2,175-mile long footpath stretching through 14 eastern states from Maine to Georgia. Conceived in 1921 and first completed in 1937, it traverses the wild, scenic, wooded, pastoral, and culturally significant lands of the Appalachian Mountains. Learn more: www.appalachiantrail.org
