Presentation: "Hiking on the AT around Franklin" - by A.T. 2000-miler Bill Van Horn

Bill will discuss the details of the NHC's 60 mile section to include access points/trail heads, view points, loop hike options, car shuttle options, over night options, water, privy and camping locations. He’ll talk briefly about Leave No Trace and the Hiking 10 essentials.

This program is part of the 2017 Walking with Spring series- The Macon County Public Library is an Appalachian Trail Community Supporter. Since Franklin’s designation in March 2010 as an A.T. Community, MCPL has helped build public awareness about the significant resources and economic opportunities the Appalachian National Scenic Trail brings to Franklin as an A.T. Community. The library’s “Walking with Spring" series of movies and programs in partnership with the Nantahala Hiking Club and the Franklin Appalachian Trail Community corresponds with thru-hiker season in Franklin and highlights the A.T., its hikers, and other outdoor activities and environmental issues. All programs are free and open to the general public. Programs are in the library Meeting Room unless otherwise noted.
