The Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) announces classes for people with interest in hiking the Appalachian Trail (A.T.). Courses provide future long-distance hikers with knowledge for a well-prepared hike on the A.T. These courses are taught by ATC staff themselves. Your personal approach to hiking the A.T. should be different than the next guy or gal! Join us for an informative workshop on all aspects of planning for a long distance hike on the A.T. — from the essential gear to the diversity of the A.T. experience. Bring your big dreams and questions to learn from experienced hikers. You’ll be more confident as you put your best foot forward to reach your goals on the A.T.
The workshop will be from 6-7:30 p.m. at Second Gear Outfitters in Asheville, NC. Event is free and open to the public.
