Section Hiking Described and Endorsed

Tim Jones, writing in the Concord (NH) Monitor on 17 August 2007 describes the joys of section hiking the Appalachian Trail under the headline "Going to pieces; Long trails can be conquered one small step at a time". One would suppose that many people, having heard of the Appalachian Trail, might not think it would be 'okay' to hike it a week at a time. If so, Jones's article explains how many people do just that, piecing together a 2,000 mile hike over many years.

As Jones says:
"So how about it? Have you ever taken your first steps on a very long journey? So what if you don't have the time to do it all at once. Cut that big journey into bite-sized pieces and savor it slowly. You'll still get there one step at a time.

"Life isn't a spectator sport. Get out and enjoy!"
