Save the Date: November 6th “The Climb to Katahdin” film screening

The Norwich screening is sponsored by the Green Mountain Club, whose staff and volunteers maintain the Appalachian Trail throughout Vermont, including here in the Upper Valley. GMC, founder of Vermont’s Long Trail in 1910, also maintains the Long Trail System’s 272 miles of main trail 175 miles of side trails, almost 70 shelters, and a new trail in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom.

Reviews of The Climb to Katahdin:

Joshua Meeks, News Producer at Baton Rouge’s WAFB, says “The Climb to Katahdin is a compelling story of a young couple taking their longest journey together. Incredible visuals of the stunning Appalachian Trail drive this documentary about perseverance, friendship, and the bond of the trail. Insightful, honest, and inspirational is the story of Coltin, Lindsay, and their four-legged companion, Chaser as they tackle the 6-month journey north. While the subject of the Appalachian Trail is certainly nothing new, the Climb to Katahdin offers a vibrantly fresh take on the adventure through America.”

“The honesty of the film makes it a true ambassador to the hiking community and a must-see for anyone who has ever contemplated hiking the A.T. or any other major trail.” Brandi “Styx” Bowers, A.T. Thruhiker- Class of 2012
