Long Distance Hiking Trail

"Most Americans can identify the Appalachian Trail, and most of the backpacking community can identify the Triple Crown, which refers to the AT, Continental Divide Trail, and Pacific Crest Trail. But few people know about the Pacific Northwest Trail, North Country Trail, Buckeye Trail, Finger Lakes Trail, or the International Appalachian Trail. "
-- Andrew Skurka, hike the sea-to-sea.
