we ask hikers to plan, prepare, and stay informed by undertaking the following:

Register your hike: If you are planning a backpacking trip of any length from an overnight trip to a full thru-hike please register your hike at ATCamp.org. Registration opens on December 1, 2020. Registering your hike enables us to provide essential updates by text and/or email while you are traversing the A.T. and gives you the means to choose a starting date and location to help reduce crowding.
