Trekking the Appalachian Trail

Who would’ve thought that, among the non-stop metropolises and historic settlements that the USA’s eastern reaches have so much wilderness to offer? See for yourself as you embark on a nine-day trekking adventure with Lonely Planet and Intrepid, taking on parts of the mighty Appalachian Trail. Get wild in New England, find your feet along Franconia Ridge and test your endurance with a hike to the summit of granite behemoth, Mt Katahdin. With a local leader joining you every step of the way as you set up camp and hike to mountain huts – and options to suit your own trekking level – you can truly discover the rugged landscapes, pine-topped ranges and lake-dotted valleys of the Appalachians.
