Imagine walking almost 2,200 miles through 14 states. Sounds pretty incredible, right? Well, people from all over America and the world do it every single year on the Appalachian Trail.
The trail is the longest ‘hiking only’ trail in the world and runs from Georgia to Maine. Each year, thousands of people set off on the trail to do everything from a short day hike to walk the entire trail.
Our nation has so many fantastic national parks that we sometimes forget that our state parks offer beautiful scenery and treasures to discover. One of loveliest of these is Fall Creek Falls State Park, near Pikeville, Tennessee.
