Free Hiking Plan PDF

Tuesday, November 15, 2022

One of the resource items noted in the book is a copy of my hiking plan as a PDF.

This plan contains the original miles I expected to hike each day, where my rest days were planned, where my mail drops were, etc.

It was updated after my hike with the actual miles and locations I reached each day - which were significantly different than the plan.

The resulting hike was a full five weeks longer than the plan, as I over-estimated the miles and under-estimated when I would need to take rest days.

Here's a link to the plan.



Hi I'm Paddler

Also goes by the alias... Tim Hewitt

I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 1999 from Georgia to Maine.

I wrote a book about my trip, which is available here as well as on all of the normal book sellers.

My 13 year old son "Spotted Bear" joined me for 5 weeks on the trip, and his journal is also shared in my book!
