The Appalachian Trail (AT) might be America’s most famous footpath and it travels right through Frederick County. We will explore the history of the AT and the hiking phenomenon it is today. The trail has a fun and quirky culture surrounding it and we will dive into some unique, fun facts. The first session is in the classroom and the second session is a hike to see some iconic sights on this famous footpath. Hike is about 1 mile with a small climb. Prepare to walk on rocky, uneven surfaces. FCC will provide transportation to the trail head via a van. We will depart from FCC. Plan about 4 hours for the 2nd class from departure to return.
