Long Distance Hiking on the Appalachian Trail for the Older Adventurer is designed to help those over 50 walk through the decisions and research necessary to meet the challenge of the Appalachian Trail. This valuable book is broken down into four sections covering the decision to begin a long distance hike, planning the hike, the culture of the trail, as well as the costs involved.
From the back cover:
“Long Distance Hiking on the Appalachian Trail for the Older Adventurer is an invitation to older adventurers (late forties and up) to consider the world of long distance hiking. The book shows how long distance hiking is an accessible adventure that offers a sense of clarity and simplicity that is difficult to find elsewhere. It is based upon what the author, David Ryan, learned during his end-to-end hike of the Appalachian Trail that he completed two days after his 51st birthday. This second edition of the book has several new pages, new insights, and incorporates changes in long distance hiking that have occurred since the first edition was published ten years ago.”
