Fall hiking and the Appalachian Trail


Mt. Washington, NH in the Fall

The Appalachian Trail is one long hiking trail that begins in Georgia and ends on Mount Katadin, Maine. Fall is a beautiful time to be outdoors or on the Trail.  This activity is about calculating the needs and rates involved in enduring this 2,168 mile trek.

Hopefully you and your students are still enjoying the outdoors during this cooler, more colorful time of year.  Use this enthusiasm to look at the rate calculations necessary for an Appalachian Trail thru-hiker.
