Ten years ago I wrote Long Distance Hiking on the Appalachian Trail for the Older Adventurer. The book is an invitation to the long distance hiking experience and is designed to help those 45 and older prepare for a long distance hike. If you are looking for an amazing experience, a long distance is something to consider.
The book has been well recieved by the hiking community and has been one of the better selling Appalachian Trail books for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. But like anything, things change and it was time to bring the book up to date.
The Second Edition of Long Distance Hiking on the Appalachian Trail for the Older Adventurer is now available. The book can be purchased for $11.50 from this site, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, and Amazon.com.
