We're hoping moviegoers walking out of "Wild
" this weekend are inspired to embark on an their own outdoor adventures. If Reese can do it"_
In case you don't have a year to train, prep and hike the Pacific Crest Trail, check out some of our favorite local distance treks:
Known as Vermont'sÒfootpath in the wilderness," the Long Trail is A 273-mile footpath that you can hike in entirety, in sections or for the day. Created by the Green Mountain Club between 1910 and 1930, this trek is beautiful at just about every turn.
With as many miles as there are days in the year, The Long Path extends from Fort Lee Historical Park in New Jersey to John Boyd Thacher State Park near Albany in New York and connects a variety of parks and preserves along the way.
Connecting the Appalachian Trail and the Brandywine Trail, the Mason Dixon trail is 193 miles from Pennsylvania to Delaware. This one is good for hikers who may need to pop out for provisions, as about 30% of the trail is along public roads.
And of course, if you DO have a year and change. A lot of change...
The famed Appalachian Trail or AT has hosted many a Discover Outdoors guide along its approximately 2,200 miles. Spanning from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mount Katahdin in Maine, the AT is maintained by 31 trail clubs and partnerships and features about 250 shelters and campsites.
Enjoy the flick this weekend and if you regret never doing that epic thing you wanted to do, do something epic now
Your DO Team
