Appalachian Trail: See a six-month hike in 5 minutes
For you, it'll take five minutes, thanks to Gallagher, who videotaped his hike and "condensed and reinterpreted" it in what he called The Green Tunnel, posted just a couple of weeks ago.
Obviously, he doesn't show the entire Appalachian Trail, but you do get a flavor for the trail, assuming it really is the Appalachian Trail (not that we have any doubts).
Unfortunately, you don't burn any calories taking this virtual hike:
Incidentally, the other two trails that make up the Triple Crown of long-distance hiking is the Continental Divide Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail. If you go, drop us a line about your hike. Or make a video.
