Amazing Heritage Trails from around the World.

September 24, 1983: From the bank, it all looked so peaceful. Golden sun-drops swirled innocently over foam-flecked blue and soft breezes stirred the pines. The initial fifteen or twenty yards to the gravel bar was almost anticlimactic. The current was strong, but the water was barely ankle-deep.

The coming storm. Sky over Whitestone Cliffs Trail, Plymouth, Connecticut. September 6, 2018, 4:46 PM.

Make an Heritage Trail

July 7, 1983: A ledge just above the AT along the ascent had a 180-degree view stretching from southwest to northwest. To the south, Skyline Drive snaked around Hogback's green summits and followed the Blue Ridge towards Stony Man, Hawksbill and beyond.

An old rail track in Northern California could become a 300-mile hiking trail

Wild mushrooms I saw on a hike back in the summer of 2011. Too much green and lack of variety to make it an art print (for me, at least) so it's been gathering dust on my hard drives over the past thirteen years.

First signs of spring. Appalachian Trail, Prospect Mountain, Salisbury, Connecticut. April 8, 2024, 4:20 PM. Tufts of green grass and tiny new leaves on the prickly underbrush.

Pictured: Pen Mar Park from High Rock.
July 14, 1983: Entering Pen Mar Park was a relief. In the years around 1900, this spot was billed as the Coney Island of the Blue Ridge, with an amusement park, seven hotels and about a hundred boarding houses. After years of slow decline, the park was forced out of business by World War II gas rationing in 1943.

September 1, 1983: I flipped through the register, finding comment after comment about the magnificent view from the fabled Smarts Mountain privy. I shrugged my shoulders and sauntered up to check out the outhouse.

50k attempt tomorrow on the Backbone, and its scheduled to rain but only .4, so fingers crossed!
Ive got snacks prepped and socks darned. Just need to scrape out the dried mud from my shoes from last time.

Thinking about a short backpack in the Humboldt Redwoods State Park, so here's some trail that I wouldn't mind walking again for .

The first three are from the River Trail:
The last is from Johnson Camp Trail, my way down from Grasshopper Fire Lookout:

September 1, 1983: The trail down the far side of Smarts Mountain was in worse shape than the ascent had been, but what did that matter to a man surrounded by that kind of magnificence The AT lunged downward across more of those dripping, mossy rocks.

Hey Franz-- your end-of-day inspired me to do the same! Because of my other activities, I've neglected my cycling. Just now finished a scenic loop on local around two lakes. Was rewarded at the end with these two amazing creatures who posed while I took pics as I rode by!!

June 13, 1983: Up until three years ago, the Appalachian Trail had turned right and followed the crest of Big Walker for many miles, but barely a trace of the old crestline trail was visible. Today, the AT reaches the top and descends immediately along the opposite slope into the next valley.

Then and Now in 2 parts.

Rands View on the slopes of Prospect Mountain along the Appalachian Trail in northwest Connecticut. One pic is from August 14, 1983 during my thru-hike. One is from yesterday, April 8, 2024.

June 12, 1983: Before 6:30, as the first faint blue twilight tinged the blackness, I was on my way. The woods were at their prettiest in those fleeting moments before sunrise I promised myself that I would try to get early starts more often.
