A wonderful infographic about 35 reasons to hike the appelation trail by the geniouses at 97thfloor.
Discover why so many hikers visit the Appalacian Trail every year and secrets along the trail. It takes 5 months to complete and only 13% who attempt it finish. It spans from the state of Maine to Georgia. The trail is marked by about 160,000 white trail markers.
Have you ever been hiking and wondered, is that a Sign or a Trail Blaze?

The following infographic is pretty humerous for anyone who has spent a good amount of time hiking and been confused by the "signs" left as trail markings. Enjoy!
