An Appalachian Trail: A Project in Regional Planning


This is a copy of Benton MacKaye’s work, originally published in the October 1921 issue of the Journal of the American Institute of Architects, that gave birth to the Appalachian National Scenic Trail. This was a long and fitful birth, whose midwives are the storied volunteers who created and who maintain the Trail.
