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).
