The Oldest Man on the Appalachian Trail
His trail hiking and quest to hike the Appalachian Trail started in January 2017 in Georgia, on Springer Mountain. The trail took him through beautiful areas such as Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania, and Mount Katahdin in Maine.
At 82, Grey Beard himself hiked all 2,190 miles of the Appalachian Trail. Conservation advocates walked the last mile of the trail with him, and even had a ribbon ready for him to cut at the end.
