In 2018 I completed a northbound thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. 2,200 miles through the USA from Georgia to Maine.

What is the Appalachian trail?

  • Location: USA: Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, , Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine.
  • Southern Terminus: Springer Mountain, Georgia
  • Northern Terminus: Mt Katahdin, Maine
  • Distance: 2200 miles (it changes slightly every year with reroutes and changes, plus extra for side trips to get water, trips into towns and side adventures!
  • Highest Point: Clingmans Dome, Great Smoky Mountains National Park 6,643ft / 2,025m
  • Lowest point: Bear Mountain State Park, New York 124ft / 38m
  • Elevation: +472,296ft / -470,810 that’s the equivilant of climbing Everest – from sea to summit and back down again – over 16 times!!
  • Duration:It took me 115 days (~4 months, this is on the quicker end of average)

Adventure with purpose.

785 million people globally don't have access to clean water. That's 1 in 10 people. In 2020 this is not ok.

I fundraise for Just a Drop in the hope that if I walk thousands of miles for clean water then the people who need to won’t have to. Find out more
