Hi, I am a single Mom with Fibromyalgia. I am almost 59 years old and I want to walk this trail before I turn 62 so I have some time to get ready. I hope to raise a bit of money for fibromyalgia research and awareness. I would be interested in meeting others who would like to walk with me.

Hello everyone! My name is Trevor Stephens and I am currently serving in the USMC. I am about to be coming up on the end of my service and as a celebration of my service and my best friend graduating from college we are planning a trip to walk from San Francisco to Boston starting March 1 2018. We plan on using the ADT from San Fran to the Indiana-Ohio border. We are looking for any tips about the trails anyone may have. We're mostly concerned with the Nevada and Utah portions of the hike. Like how long are some of the bigger stretches between civilization? Are there a large amount of snakes? Whats the best way to navigate the trails? All tips and answers to questions are greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

My wife and I are willing to be a trail angel as the ADT nearly passes our condo in the small section in Kentucky just outside Devou Park, in Covington, Kentucky. We'd offer thru hikers a bed, shower and meal. I wrote an article in Cincinnati Magazine comparing Spain's Camino Trail to the ADT. I've done the Camino and a small section of the ADT, as well as a lifetime of backpacking in Alaska and the lower US. Contact me if you coming through our area. Jene at 513-378-3764.

I've wanted to do this trail for a while, but from everything I have learned, there is NO WAY to possibly do it without giving you guys $60 for the directions. Nice setup you have going here.

I'm planning a cross-country mountain bike ride beginning in late May or very early June. Most of the route will consist of the ADT, it will also include the Colorado Trail and Durango to Moab route. We'll be traveling east to west. If anyone is interested in joining on this ride, definitely get in contact!

Hello All! My trail name is Snake Charmer. I will begin my journey on the trail from the Western Terminus on, or about, May 10 2017. I will hike for three months and plan to wrap in Denver by mid August. My plan is to bypass the Sierra Nevadas in may and come back to cross them in late September. In 2018 I will complete the trail.

I have some interest from others to join me on parts of my journey and I also have a Trail Angel that will be hanging around me for the trip.

If anyone is interested in tagging along or the Trail Angels info, please let me know.

My sons (22 and 20) have been considering this hike. I am curious if there are places that I can send support boxes with misc items to. My hope is to send things ahead of them so that the items are available when they get to whatever the next stop is.

Hey All,

I have plans to hike the ADT in 2017. Plans of riding solo with a big dog unless anyone would like to do the thru hike with me. Can start in Cali or end in Cali, depends on the season.Please give me tips of your experience, things that came in handy to pack, or any other valuable information. Also, if anyone is generous to provide housing at anytime on the journey there would be fantastic and greatly appreciated.

Kindness and best of luck

Hi Fellow Hikers,

I recently moved to upstate New York to accomplish some new goals and explore the hiking arena of the Catskills. Charmed by the beauty of the inner and outer experience, I got closer to nature than I thought possible and contacted Lyme very sooner after my arrival. I was once bitten as a child and had no awareness of the dangers and how important precautions are before any journey. I am healing and want to pose a challenge to walk to San Francisco to raise awareness on Lyme Disease and the potential for a full recovery.

With that being said, I am looking for interested hikers to join me on this walk, and/or those who have information about the hike, camping facilities and everything in between! Thanks for your support! And good luck to those starting their journey.

For 3 1/2 years I've been virtually following the trail (Southern ADT route). I'm currently heading west "in" Illinois almost to Missouri.  I think it would really raise awareness of your trail to develop an app that would let people virtually travel your trails using their pedometer steps (Fitbit!).  You could offer the app for free but periodically ask for donations.  I thought it might be interesting to be able to buy patches signifying the sections that have been covered. It would be crazy cool to let people who actually do walk the trail to post pictures for the virtual walkers!  What do you think?
