This past weekend I had the opportunity to take a few days to hike a 40 mile section of the Appalachian Trail (the same section I did last month with my dad), but this time around, I hiked it alone and I completed it in 3 days rather than 5.
This section of the Appalachian Trail is absolutely beautiful, and the weather this weekend was perfect. Everything was lush and green, there was a nice breeze all day long, and even though there were definitely some tough sections, I enjoyed every moment of my hike.
Check out my adventures below:
This trip really felt like the beginning of my gap year, and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to spend some time on my own in such a beautiful place. Getting to reflect on high school and think towards the future has only made me more excited for this upcoming year.
Until the next adventure,
Lizzie (trail name: Spitz)

Loved reading about your journey! What a fantastic accomplishment Lizzie. Looks like the beginning of a spectacular gap year! So how did your feet fare in the end?
They were pretty sore but healing quickly!!

Excellent video. It makes me want to do that section again. (It has been 15 years since I was down there.) Take it easy on the feet.
