May 31, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Laurie Potteiger will be at the Bolivar-Harpers Ferry Public Library Thursday, May 31, 2018 @ 6:00 pm to discuss Day Hiking the A.T. in 14 states.

Set your sights on exploring the beauty and diversity of the Appalachian Trail by visiting iconic locations or day-hiking highlights in each of the 14 states the Trail passes through.  Learn how anyone can plan and commemorate an unforgettable A.T. experience; no backpack required.

Laurie Potteiger is the information services manager for the non-profit Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC), where she works to introduce the public to the magnificent Appalachian National Scenic Trail and how to enjoy it sustainably. In 1987 she hiked the A.T. from Georgia to Maine and has also re-hiked more than 2000 miles in shorter hikes since then. Her passion is inspiring more people to get out and enjoy the diverse beauty and breadth of one of the America’s greatest treasures by taking on the 14 State Challenge.
