Section hiking the Appalachian Trail

Section hiking the Appalachian Trail means doing a segment at a time, whenever it’s convenient. It’s not as glamorous as a thru-hike, but it’s still a great way to experience the “footpath for the people.”

Unfortunately, my cancer recovery segments are very short. I may need 21,800 segments to complete the 2,180 miles. That’s going to take a while.

But I’ve accomplished a few already. The photo above was taken two days ago near Great Barrington, MA. The one below is near Becket, MA in January.

  1. Hi Chip. Phil Brown recommended your blog. I’m an A.T. hiker, too. In two weeks I will be trying to complete 2/5 of the trail, after blood clots forced me off last summer after 3/5. Of course, I have other health problems now. Oh well. I look forward to reading your future posts. Best of luck with your cancer recovery.
