Video: Ask an Appalachian Trail Thru Hiker | What's up with those blue blazed trails?

We're offering the opportunity for you to ask the Appalachian Trail questions you've always wondered about. As we meet up with Storm throughout his Appalachian Trail, we'll be asking him questions about his experiences.

On our most recent visit with Storm, we ask what's up with the blue blazed side trails that surround the Appalachian Trail. Storm lets us know that some of the best experiences of the Appalachian Trail are along those side trails and that they are well worth taking!


Storm is posting regular updates from the AT on his Trail Journal

You can also follow him on his Facebook Page, Moe Hikes the Appalachian Trail

Storm is also working to raise money for charity as he hikes the Appalachian Trail. He currently has a GoFundMe campaign that is supporting the work of the Catskill Center to protect and preserve the Catskills and the Catskill Park, where Storm lives, enjoys the outdoors and volunteers!
