YOUR CHANCE TO Edit

Appalachian Mountains are in the focus of interest of hikers, rather than climbers. They are famous for the Appalachian National Scenic Trail, generally known as the Appalachian Trail or simply the A.T. This is a marked hiking trail in the eastern United States extending between Springer Mountain in Georgia and Mount Katahdin in Maine. The total length is approximately 2,200 miles (3,500 km). The Appalachian Trail is famous for its many hikers, some of whom, called thru-hikers, attempt to hike it in its entirety in a single season.

DID YOU KNOW (3) Edit Add

• Mount Washington in Appalachians is the place with the world's worst weather! It is the combination of extreme cold, wet, high winds, icing conditions and low visibility consistently found atop Mount Washington, which earn it the title "Home of the World's Worst Weather". Despite its relatively low elevation (6288 feet/ 1916 m) Mount Washington is located at the confluence of three major storm tracks, and being the highest point in New England, it generally takes the brunt of passing storms. The steepness of the slopes, combined with the north/south orientation of the range, cause the winds to accelerate dramatically as they rise up from the valleys. Mt. Washington Observatory one of the most unique weather station on earth is located here.... Read more

 

• The famous Trail in Appalachian Mountains passes through 14 states. The path is maintained by 31 trail clubs and multiple partnerships and managed by the National Park Service and the nonprofit Appalachian Trail Conservancy. The majority of the trail is in wilderness, although some portions traverse towns, roads and cross rivers.

 

• The Adirondack Mountains in New York are sometimes considered part of the Appalachian chain but, geologically speaking, are a southern extension of the Laurentian Mountains of Canada
