Hike 100 miles on the A.T. in 2016!

Join the Appalachian National Scenic Trail as we celebrate the centennial of the National Park Service all year long! In honor of the 100th birthday we invite everyone to get outside and hike 100 miles on the Appalachian Trail during the year 2016.

Pro Tip: Not all 100 miles have to be on the Appalachian Trail!

The Challenge

Whether you are novice or professional - get ready to hike! The A.T. Hike100 Challenge invites everyone, regardless of skill level, to complete 100 miles of hiking - with at least one hike being on the Appalachian Trail. Hike solo or in a group; make a trip out of it or take it one mile at a time. However you choose to complete your 100 mile challenge, just get outside and have fun!

Those who complete the 100 mile challenge by the end of December 31, 2016 will be eligible to receive an awesome limited edition A.T. Hike100 decal sticker. Get started by downloading your Hiking Log and registration form, then record your mileage throughout the year. Once you have completed your 100 miles, e-mail or mail your forms to:
