…the Appalachian Trail is a state of being—a merger of ancient mountains, flowing rivers, caring companions, human endeavor, and individual growth and change. Nothing is merely human, and nothing is merely natural. The essence of both intertwines in a long thread, woven north to south, and back again.

—SUSAN POWER BRATTON, The Spirit of the Appalachian Trail, 2012

…the [Appalachian] trail is a human community, comprised not just of hikers but also of the people they encounter along the way. The trail is maintainers and trail clubs, hostel managers, outfitters, forest rangers, ridge runners, hut crews, and country store clerks. In the center is the hiker culture, sometimes entirely self-absorbed, sometimes strongly interactive with the business and organizations outside the official trail corridor.

…the [Appalachian] trail and its protective corridor stand as public domain. The trail has no user fees or barriers to entry. It is a democratic enterprise, rooted in American volunteerism. A refuge for hikers, the AT gives them the legal right to pass through the heart of the eastern mountains unimpeded, via an intentional synthesis between the natural and the human.
