Abstract:
Benton MacKaye’s efforts to beautify the area blighted by excessive lumbering and erosion generated the creation of a trail that today covers 2,000 miles and runs through fourteen states. The alliance of volunteer hiking clubs and what became known as the Appalachian Trail Conservancy yielded the trail completed in 1937. Today, groups such as the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy help to upkeep the trails and surround region, along with minimizing activities like logging and development.
