Anyone familiar with the Nebraska segment of the trail? I am planning a run across Nebraska in April and would love to know more about this. The ADT would be much more preferable than state highways. I only have 2 weeks to accomplish my goal, however a transcon run is definitely on my checklist of things to do. Would also entertain any offers to put me up for a night. Not picky about accomodations.

Hi !
I'm a Norwegian girl (turned 39 in august...), and I plan to do thetrail on bicycle in 2007 (may-sept./oct.) I have wanted to something like this for a long time, and when I found this web-site I knew this was it!! Got my map kit a couple of days ago, and that makes it feel alittle bit closer to actually happening :-) All I need now is company, so if there is someone out there who thinks about doing the same, please send me a mail, and we can compare notes...??

Hi, I'm a Norwegian girl (39 years old) who are planning to do the trail in 2007 on bicycle, got my map kit this weekend, and feel a little bit closer to getting there :-) So far I'm alone with my plans, but I'm looking for company, so if someone out there is planning the same send me a mail and maybe we can go together ??

Also if you already did this I could really need some tips about what to do and what not to do....

I'm hoping to do the trail from NY to San Francisco next year, and am just in the early stages of research. My current big concern (of an enormous list!) is that I only have 6 months available. I therefore need a route which is maximum 4000 miles, and ideally more like 3500. The ADT is over 6000, which my little legs just wouldn t cover off. Can anyone point me in the direction finding out about a shorter route?

A big thank you in advance!

I can extend a similar offer for Colorado Springs. I live just outside of Garden of the Gods. I thru-hiked the AT in 95 and would like to offer back some of the kindness that I received as a long distance hiker to those on the ADT. Sorry I don't have a private swimming lake.

We live on the ADT trail in Southern Illinois. Have met many nice trekkers. We have a bunkhouse and private lake to swim and cool off if anyone is interested in staying overnight during their trek. No Charge. Just the good conversation!

I'm planning on hiking the trail completely on foot starting not long after the 20th this month. If anyone is in the area at thetime, here's my e-mail:

My husband and I are walking in 2007. Up until yesterday we were planning on walking the AT, but we just read a brochure about the ADT and we're stoked. Our plan is to leave March 1st. If you have any advice or comments, please feel free to send them. Thanks. P.S. We're walking with our dog, Beaner.

Getting to the Point. In a Dozen Pairs of Shoes, is the book title and story of my 5000 mile solo trail run across America on the ADT. It will be available through this site soon, but until then can be ordered through and your local bookstore. Enjoy the trail! Brian Stark

I went with the Unionport Boy Scout troop 192 for a bike ride along the North Bend Rail to Trail section in WV. We covered 53 miles from Parkersburg, WV to Smithburg, WV. It was great! We want to go back and finish it.

Great Site. I am looking to start non-stop hike across the entire trail in May. Others who wish to join are welcome and can contact me at

I plan on hiking the entire trail starting in mid April, I think it would be best If I didn't go alone for the entire stretch - I'm looking for people to hike with for either the whole way or part of the way...It's going to be awesome.

This trail is amazing. I hope to do parts of it from my home here in Cool, CA. I hope more people will learn about it and preserve more of America in this way, for future generations.
