About the Film:

For more than half of the U.S. population, the A.T. is less than a day’s drive away. Yet despite its proximity to many major cities like Atlanta and Boston, few truly know the splendor of this national treasure. Appalachian Impressions takes viewers on a six-month journey of thrills and challenges in fourteen states from Georgia to Maine. To watch a trailer of the film visit www.appalachiantrail.org/journey.  Reserve your seat today by visiting www.appalachiantrail.org/journey.
