As part of it's America's Wild Spaces series, the National Geographic Channel's next episode will be about the Appalachian Trail.
“America’s Wildest Places: The Appalachian Trail” features never before seen aerial footage and an in-depth look at America’s first National Scenic Trail.
National Geographic traveled from South to North, explored the remotest corners of the AT, and met the scientists fighting to keep this wilderness wild. The film will explore this 5 million step journey through the five distinct regions of the AT landscape, and learn what it takes to keep this ribbon of green safe, healthy, and totally wild.
The program will be aired next Tuesday, November 10, at 8 p.m., and 11 p.m., EST.
