The Appalachian Trail, known by hikers as the AT, runs from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mount Katahdin in Maine, a distance of about 2,160 miles.
In the New York-New Jersey region, it runs more than 160 miles, from the Delaware Water Gap to Connecticut.
The trail is uniformly marked with a 2" x 6" white-painted, vertical blaze.
The first section of the AT was built by volunteers of the NY-NJ Trail Conference in 1922-23, from the Bear Mountain Bridge (it opened in 1924) to the Ramapo River south of Arden in Harriman-Bear Mountain State Parks.
The AT was designated a National Scenic Trail by Congress in 1968.
The AT and a protective corridor are managed cooperatively by the National Park Service and the nonprofit Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC).
The ATC delegates maintenance responsibilities to member trail clubs, including the NY-NJ Trail Conference, along the length of the trail.
The Appalachian Trail Guide to New York-New Jersey and similar guides for other states describe the trail in great detail, with comments about trail features every few tenths of a mile.
These guides are revised every three to five years.
The Appalachian Trail Data Book, published by the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, is revised yearly and covers the whole trail in fewer than 100 pages.
