The Appalachian Trail is the longest hiking-only footpath in the world, ranging from Maine to Georgia. What makes the protection of the Appalachian Trail so unique is the collaboration of countless individuals, private organizations, and state & federal agencies to complete and enhance this long-distance hiking Trail from Georgia to Maine. With your generosity and each sale from NORTH RIVER OUTDOORS you will be supporting the Appalachian Trail Conservancy efforts to conserve the footpath, viewsheds, and environmental and cultural resources along the approximately 2,180 mile Appalachian Trail.
NORTH RIVER OUTDOORS (NRO) gives 1% of all Sales from our Store, Online, and Outdoor Shows to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) to protect and promote the world's most famous long-distance hiking trail. There is no cap to the amount of money we give each month to ATC.
