Careful and Responsible Management

by dedicated Members
The 2,100-mile Appalachian National Scenic Trail and the public side and connecting trails that form the trail network are maintained by volunteer members of 30 trail clubs along the length and breadth of the Trail from Georgia to Maine.

People like you—who have jobs and families and commitments—are the stewards for the public.

These articles identify for you what your stewards do so that you, your family, and your friends, can enjoy hiking your public trails.
