In the summer of 2013, Matt Kirk did what no one before him had yet to accomplish:
Without the support of a dedicated crew, he backpacked the entire 2,185-mile Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia in less than 60 days. This is his story.

Some other fun facts:
In 2004, Matt hiked all 99 miles of the AT through Shenandoah National Park in less than 24 hours.
In 2009, for the Smokies Challenge Adventure Run he hiked all 72 miles of the AT through the Great Smokey Mountains National Park in 18 hours.
In 2013, he started in Maine and by the time he got to Damacus, VA he was still 6' 3", but only 140 pounds.

Backpacking light, feels so right.
