A.T. Vista Hikes - August 7, and 8, 2021

The inaugural A.T. Vista program begins this year as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Benton MacKaye's 1921 article, “An Appalachian Trail: A Project in Regional Planning.”  

If you enjoyed previous ATC Biennial programs, the new A.T. Vista will continue to provide an opportunity for people who cherish the Appalachian Trail to hike, attend workshops on topics of common interest, take excursions to points of interest in the region, attend evening entertainment programs, and connect with other kindred spirits. ​

A.T. Vista in 2021 - Celebrating 100 Years: This is a multi-day event on August 7 and 8, 2021 featuring local hikes conducted along the Appalachian Trail and other nearby trail hikes in the 14 states.  You can also hike your own hike and send photos and videos of your day on the trail.  Use #atvista2021 when posting your photos and videos on social media.  

Access to pre-recorded online workshops are also available to review at your leisure.
