We’re excited about April Fool’s Trail Days going on today and tomorrow in Franklin, North Carolina. It’s a big celebration of the Appalachian Trail. As an Appalachian Gateway Community, Franklin opens the town to all hikers of the Appalachian trail as they start their thru-hike journey north 2,180 miles to Mt. Katahdin.
One of our amazing dealers, Outdoor 76, will be a major base camp for the fun, since they are located right on Main Street where all the activities are going down. They’ll be giving away free gear, food and plenty of fun for all. Special guest speaker Jennifer Pharr Davis will be there to talk about how the Appalachian Trail became so important to her. She is the holder of the women’s speed record for the fastest thru-hike on the AT. And, in June she is attempting to claim the overall speed record on the AT.
