What are the best Appalachian Trail section hikes?

What are the best parts of the Appalachian Trail to section hike?

Although the answer to that question is subjective and no doubt hotly debated, the folks over at the REI store in Asheville will attempt to provide some in-depth details on the southern portion of the AT so that backpackers wishing to do some section hiking can decide for themselves.

Next month one of REI's Appalachian Trail experts will talk about his favorite AT sections from Georgia to Virginia. He will also provide tips on how to plan out your section hikes, including an introduction to all the logistics, gear, nutrition, training, as well as some insider tips and tricks. Participants will also have the chance to win prizes.

The event, to be held on Tuesday, March 15th from 7:00 p.m. - 8:15 p.m., is free, but you need to register over at the REI website beforehand.
