“Trail angels” are a part of the Appalachian Trail experience for many hikers. They offer snacks, provide rides, and take hikers into their homes. Gregory Cook has been a trail angel for three years, hosting 260 hikers to date. He will talk about being a trail angel and share stories of the remarkable people he’s encountered at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 29. This talk is co-sponsored by Howe Library, the Hanover Friends of the Appalachian Trail, and the Norwich Friends of the Appalachian Trail.
Gregory Cook, MSW, lives in Wilder, Vermont and has been a social worker at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center for thirty-eight years. In addition to having been an Appalachian Trail “Trail Angel” since 2011, Mr. Cook is a property monitor for the Upper Valley Land Trust. He is an avid hiker and a member of the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Four Thousand Footer Club.
