Each year in recent times, between two and four hundred people have successfully completed Appalachian Trail thru hikes, while the number is usually less than 200 for the PCT and significantly fewer on the more remote CDT.Meanwhile, greater numbers are hiking sections of these trails thus called “section hikers” with the goal of piecing them together to eventually complete them end to end.Completing any one of these or other long trails is a great goal and a wonderful accomplishment in and of itself. Sometimes, though, the long distance backpacking bug bites, and doing just one isn’t enough. As of December, 2008, approximately 92 people are known to have accomplished that goal.Only the organization known as ALDHAWest (or Appalachian Long Distance Hikers Association, Western States Chapter) officially recognizes the “Triple Crown” accomplishment and, operating on the honor system, awards plaques to those who apply for the status.However, the personal satisfaction, not to mention precious moments and memories, of experiencing and completing these trails is certainly what it’s all about.
