The Appalachian Trail at Newfound Gap in the Smokies

Imagine for a moment that you decided to hike the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine, and every time you feel like you have covered a good amount of trail, you come upon a sign like this one that reminds you just how far you still have to go!  The Appalachian Trail here in Great Smoky Mountains National Park straddles the North Carolina & Tennessee border much of the way, and at a point called Newfound Gap, a northbound thru-hiker (someone hiking the trail from south-to-north) has gone approximately 209 miles…and still has 1,972 miles to go to get to Maine!
