Hiker Festival

Hiker Festival


Following our Hall of Fame Banquet on May 4, join the Appalachian Trail Museum for a fun day of activities and a celebration to mark the opening of our new exhibits.

The Appalachian Trail Museum marks a major milestone in its own history in 2019 with the installation of five new exhibits. Children will experience a "Night on the Trail" as they enter a replica trail shelter on the lower level. Once inside, a skylight in the roof will frame a night sky illuminated with many constellations, and sounds of the night will pique every child's curiosity. Exhibits on the newly renovated second floor will offer visitors a contemporary trail experience, with displays featuring long-distance hiking legend Walkin' Jim Stoltz, a national hiking event "HikaNation," and the landmark signing of the National Trails System Act. A view to the upper floor will offer visitors the story of blazing the A.T. in Maine, complete with A.T. founder Myron Avery’s folding boat.

More information on activities coming soon.
