We all like to challenge ourselves, and for the thrillseekers out there this means finding new and exciting locations in which to test your mettle. Hikers love to tackle mountains and say that they managed to make it to the top. For a woman from the state of Tennessee, she decided she was ready to really push herself. After a lot of research, she made the decision to hike one of the more trying trails in the region. This would be her crowning achievement for hiking, and she could not wait to begin training for it. Little did she know, this would become a harrowing journey, and leave a lot of questions about her whereabouts unanswered.
The Appalachian Trail
The Appalachian Trail has long been considered to be both challenging and incredibly beautiful. Hikers are drawn to the area every year, ready to test themselves against the trail, and the elements.
Since the trail reaches through 14 states in the United States, it gives hikers the unique opportunity to really traverse the landscape. As it is so long though, it means you need to have a big backpack and be prepared for everything.
