Spanning fourteen states from Maine to Georgia, the Appalachian Trail is more than 2,185 miles long. Eighty years after completion of the continuous trail by a small cadre of volunteers, the A.T. remains America's premier hiking trail and is known as "the People's Path." Out of three million annual visitors, almost 2,500 attempt to walk the whole five million footsteps. The Appalachian Trail wall calendar - the only calendar officially published with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy - explores highlights of this legendary footpath with twelve spectacular images, as well as a map pinpointing each location along the trail incorporated into each grid page.
The three-pronged Saddleback Mountain in the High Peaks region of Maine graces the cover of the official ATC calendar for 2018. It comes in a 12"-square format and features extraordinary photographs of or from the Appalachian Trail by hiker-photographers. Each caption includes interpretive information about the site. The dates grid is as large as possible at this size and appears atop a schematic locator map for the image. Copublished with Rizzoli International since 2012.

As a sporadic section hiker looking each month at a new section of the trail keeps my dream alive of hiking on the trail.

When I renewed my membership every year, I used to get this calendar. As a stay-at-home dad, I never had a place or reason to hang it up. Now that I'm working again, I have it hung up and use it mainly to long for my next AT trip. Every picture reminds me of a trip I've taken and makes me want to be back out there.
