A.T. gets 1.2 miles longer
When Appalachian Trail season starts next year, the trek will be 1.2 miles longer thanks to three significant trail relocations in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and along the Connecticut/New York border.
The A.T.’s total length typically changes each year due to footpath relocations and more precise measurements. The total mileage is now 2,194.3 miles, according to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.
The 1.2-mile increase is due to an additional 0.4 miles along the Connecticut/New York border, 0.5 miles at Palmerton, Pennsylvania, and 0.3 miles at Loudoun Heights, West Virginia.
