Appalachian Trail Museum Accepting Nominations For Appalachian Trail Hall Of Fame Thru Jan. 31

The Appalachian Trail Museum is now accepting nominations for the Appalachian Trail Hall of Fame through January 31.

The Hall of Fame recognizes those who have made a significant contribution toward establishing and maintaining the approximately 2,190 mile footpath that passes through 14 states from Maine to Georgia.

"The thirteenth class of the Appalachian Trail Hall of Fame will be inducted in 2023, and nominations are open for Hall of Fame nominees," said Larry Luxenberg, president of the Appalachian Trail Museum – the organization that oversees the Appalachian Trail Hall of Fame.  "Nominees should be people who have made a significant positive contribution to the Appalachian Trail and who have unselfishly devoted their time, energy and resources toward making the Appalachian Trail a national treasure."

Fifty-two individuals have been inducted into the Hall of Fame in the first twelve years.  Their names and biographies can be found on the Museum's website,  "These pioneers played critical roles in building, maintaining, protecting and publicizing the Appalachian Trail," Luxenberg said.
