Amazing Heritage Trails from around the World.

It's nice when even tame trails like this have a little spice.

Have you ever been within close earshot of a big tree falling That is LOUD. And clambering through a maze of fresh tree top branches blocking the trail can be quite fun.

Every minute on the trail is a good minute....except if it is too hot.

Of course I'd rather be in a wilderness, ideally off trail somewhere, setting up camp, racing the night, and threatening rain... But trails are always nice...unless it's too hot ..

I always think to myself as soon as my feet hit the trail: here I am. That continues with every step.

rare's March Break ECO Campers cut the ribbon to reopen our seasonal trails between the Grand Trunk and the Grand River. Though the trails are open, please use caution when using them, due to potential slippery conditions. Details here:

Late day, early fall color at the New Britain Reservoir, Wolcott, Connecticut. September 28, 2019, 6:06 PM.

May 21, 1983: I did not start hiking until 10:00. I was waiting for a break in the weather in order to get a good look at the famous stretch of narrow trail which clings precariously to the cliffs on Charlies Bunion. It was about a half-mile from the shelter. Although the sky never did actually clear, the rain did stop, and the clouds lifted a bit off the ridge.

August 21, 1983: After a steep scramble up a rockslide, the trail broke out of the forest onto open rocks and ledges along the ridge crest with great views southward across the valley. The neighboring large towns of North Adams and Williamstown spread out below, covering a broad, relatively flat section of that river valley.

May 18, 1983: A short while later, we hit the nicest spot I had seen up to that point in the Smokies a grassy little rolling meadow atop a knob called Little Bald. Although we had not planned it, Dave and I wound up having lunch there and staying for about an hour.

Giant hazy sun plus wildflowers sunset, Scoville Reservoir, Wolcott, Connecticut. July 19, 2020, 7:04 PM.

June 10, 1983: From that highland plateau where I finally walked among the horses, the Appalachian Trail headed eastward, clawing up a cliff face to a rocky outcrop.

Tiny frozen waves breaking upon an icy shore and a solitary clump of dormant grass, Scoville Reservoir, Wolcott, Connecticut. February 8, 2020, 4:40 PM.

May 17, 1983: I finally made my way back to the shelter no rides, so it was another 3-mile walk in Fontana. You would not think this would bother me, with all the walking I am already doing on this trip, but my legs and the bloody stumps I use for feet have only so many miles in them on any given day, and I hoard these like a miser.

Sometimes even the shadows have tails.

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting sunset (h/t George Harrison), Hidden Lake, Fall Mountain, Plymouth, Connecticut. February 18, 2018, 5:44 PM. After a day of thawing, numerous holes in the ice reflect the pinks and golds of a sunset under a crescent moon.

Beautiful spring day hike. Sleeping Giant State Park, Hamden, Connecticut. April 20, 2023, 4:56 PM.

First trail walk with the doggo since the accident last September. What a feeling! Life is good <3

May 13, 1983: Heading north from Springer Mountain, the tiny unincorporated community of Wesser, North Carolina is the first trail town through which the physically passes. This corner of Wesser is a narrow strip along the floor of the deep, heavily-wooded, steep-walled gorge which the Nantahala River has gouged through the mountains.

They're extending the B-Line up to 17th Street this summer, which is pretty great. Sure wish they'd work on the North Dunn path though!

May 12, 1983: I walked non-stop for the first 10 miles. The final 6 miles of todays hike were nothing more than a hazy blur of fatigue. I can barely remember anything of the trail past Wayah Bald until I reached the stubbly crest of a ridge crisscrossed by logging roads four miles later. From there, the Appalachian Trail descended for almost a mile through luxuriant rhododendron thickets reminiscent

the Box Canyon and Kitchen Mesa at ,

It took some exploring to find our way out of the box canyon to the top of the box: the old trail has washed out. Then more wandering to find a route around the deep canyon and over to Kitchen Mesa.

The top of Kitchen Mesa is startlingly white: the Todilto formation, dolomite and gypsum. The Kitchen Mesa trail goes through the old Ceolophysis quarry. The whole area is beautiful Colorado Plateau .

June 7, 1983: The trail gradually descended along the ridge into the green valley where Damascus lay nestled among the mountains. The late morning sun had finally burned through the clouds as I followed the Appalachian Trail along the main street of this small southwestern Virginia town.

May 10, 1983: The journeyed through a landscape of twisted masses of rhododendron jungles breached by small, rocky streams bordered by profusions of growth, even wilder and more densely entangled. At times, the trail was a tunnel, completely encircled by rhododendron, their thickly interwoven branches forming walls and a roof.
