JellyBean’s 2014 Appalachian Trail Hike Summary

I thought it would be neat to look at what I actually hiked. This table shows the actual trail miles I hiked and doesn’t take into account any side trails or times where I was lost. I marked every night in my guidebook and I’m really glad I did. It’s pretty neat to look back and just see how much I really hiked. I also found out that I was a day off in my guide which is not a big deal. It’s really easy to loose track. The reason it starts with Day 0 is because I started at Amicalola Falls on the approach trail and only hiked 2.8 miles of the actual AT. After VA I did not sleep in any shelters but hammocked at their location. I’m hoping to create another chart with a lot more details like the weather for each day, mile markers, and comments.

  2. Great info for anyone looking to hike the A.T. fast. When you started this hike, was the plan to finish as quick as possible or it just ended that you finished so quick?

    1. Hey, Kevin. Thanks for reading. I started out planning to finish in 6 months but I found that I really enjoyed hiking more miles during the day. At Harpers Ferry I made it my goal to finish on my birthday. :)
