I started my trip in March 2002 and 3 years and 4 months later
I completed it some 30 pound lighter then I started. I did the map
backwards since I'm from California but now that I've reached the East
Coast I plan to turn around and walk back.

We Made It!

I am a counselor with Student Support Services. We are a federal trio program with 180 students on the campus of Oklahoma State University in Oklahoma City.

A little over a year ago I posted the Discovery Trail map in our study lab and asked students and staff to log in the number of miles they walked each week. (At home, campus walking trail, wellness center treadmills) We totaled these weekly and tracked the miles (with a yellow marker) that we had collectively walked each week. Only a handful of individuals participated, BUT on April 19th (ironically the anniversary of the OKC bombing) we arrived on the sunny beaches of California. We are beginning the summer with a beach party at a local park. With the beginning of summer semester we are turning around and heading back to Delaware.

This has been enormous fun. Thank you so much for posting all the details on the web so we could access it.

I am working with a group here in North Judson which plans to open the northern part of the trail through Starke County. We have a local festival here on Fathers Day weekend and hope to have a booth setup there to make more people in our area aware that the American Discovery Trail runs right through our little town.

As a menber of the Pacific Crest Trail Association, my hiking boots and heart have belonged to the PCT for many years. I am just now looking into other long distance trails (I'm not a thru hiker). I'm new to the ADTS with lots to learn. I have been to Point Reyes National Sea Shore numerous times...a beautiful spot to start/end the ADT.

I just found this site a few of weeks ago and I am knocking
out little pieces of the trail in the area. I've lived here just about
my whole life so I have been all over the American River/Folsom Lake
portion without knowing it. Walked from Auburn to Cool today, which
uses a small portion of the ADT. I should have spent the time on the
ADT but couldn't resist Auburn to Cool while you can still cross the
river at the coffer dam/tunnel. The river actually goes through a
tunnel, which was constructed as part of a proposed dam in the 70s. I
highly recommend this trail. It's about seven miles one way with great
views and opportunities for side trails. That's 3.5 down a canyon and
3.5 up the other side. You can only cross the river at the coffer dam
on Sundays because of ongoing construction to return the river to its
natural course. I drove to Antioch Saturday but it was too late to get
any hiking in so I scouted the trailheads in the area of Black Diamonds
Park. Very interesting area with a history of supplying coal to the San
Francico bay area in the late 1800s.

I met Matt Buckwalder when he visited our Church on Oct. 3, 2004. Matt stayed to have lunch with out youth group and then spoke to my sons boyscout troop. Matt made this trip sound very exciting and I think the troop may try to hike a portion of this trail in our community of Newburgh, Indiana. Matt camped out at a site that the troop does a yearly Soccer Security Campout. Thanks Matt for stopping and sharing your experieces with us. Best of luck from Zion UCC.

33 year old teacher looking to hike the Cape Henlopen-DC portion of the trip during the summer of 2005. I am athletic but never have I undertaken this type of adventure – looking for like minded individual to join me. I figure I would test out this portion (or a comparable one of 100 miles or so) and then take the next step when it comes. Please let me know if you may be interested. Thanks!

I happened to meet a guy named Matt who is walking the Discovery trail right now. He hung out with me and my family all day, and camped out in our backyard for the night. I would love to be able to do what he is doing, but with two small children, it really limits things. Heres to hoping that Matt is having a wonderful time, and a safe one.

I recently found out I had diabetes. I needed to get some exercise, so my wife and I started walking the trail in Richmond. We were so impressed with how nice it was, we went out and bought 2 bikes. We plan on riding as many of the trails as we can in as many states as we can. It is a pleasure riding on a trail with beautiful scenery and no cars to watch for.

I can't wait for more of the trails to finish. This is a great idea and should get all the tax funding it needs. I don't like walking in town and never dreamed of riding a bike again at my age(39), but the trails have inspired me to ride and that in turn will help my health. Thanks to a job well done and keep it up.

Planning for a 7000+ hike from Montauk Point, Long Island, NY, to the AT to DC, then the ADT to San Fran, then whatever to LA. Should take a year and a half, since I'll spend a couple months in Colorado climbing the 14ers out there. Should be a trip.

I am interested in learning more about the feasibility of bicycling (with a recumbent) on the Ohio section of the ADT. Has anyone done this? How does one cut through and pick up the trail again when it becomes unrideable? Are the state roadways o.k. for doing solo, around the sections that are not bikeable? Is this a stupid idea?--I want to continue my cross-country ADT trip, but can't walk it. I'd love to hear from anyone who can help. Thanks

Currently My girlfriend Rada and myself are hiking North on the Appalachian Trail. We're in Damascus Va. at mile marker 460 and plan to hike up to Harpers Ferry where we will pick up the ADT. There we'll walk east to the atlantic and then return to Harpers and head out West till we run out of time money and boots. well thats the plan anyway.
