  • Group size: 50
  • Instructor: Appalachian Trail Conservancy

The Appalachian Trail Conservancy presents a workshop for novice long-distance hikers that dream of hiking on the A.T. Learn the ins and outs of long-distance hiking while understanding the reality of our collective impact on the Trail. Bring your big dreams and questions to learn from the experienced hikers on the ATC staff. You'll be more confident as you put your best foot forward to reach your goals on the Appalachian Trail.


The ATC is facilitating 2 workshops on the same day because of the high fill rates of previous How To Hike The A.T. classes. The first offering, 10:00 am-11:30 am, is the same class that is being offered in the afternoon, just shorter version. Please note that the REI Charlotte store is located near Northlake Mall.
