Details

What does it take to live 6 months of your life hiking the Appalachian Trail? Come to this free presentation by Carolyn (trail name Freckles) to find out what life on the Trail is REALLY like. Part of the discussion will include planning, hiking gear, food, food preparation, navigation, trail life, etc. Questions and discussion will be welcome. Her gear will be on display to view. A discussion about her hike will include the special challenges of hiking for older hikers. There are many things to consider before attempting a thru hike, and many ways to hike it. Everyone hikes their own hike, but preparation and determination are key for success. If you’ve been thinking about taking this challenge, come talk with Freckles!

Carolyn and her husband took up hiking, biking, backpacking, wilderness canoeing, and whitewater kayaking. They now live at the midpoint of the Appalachian Trail, and she is on the trail regularly. Her first of three thru hike attempts was in 2009, and she was finally successful on her third attempt in 2014! She hiked the entire trail with a seventy four year old woman, Drag’nfly, who remains the oldest woman to have thru hiked! Please contact the Main Library at 904.827.6940 for more information.
