On October 7, 1923, the first section of the Appalachian Trail was opened. In 1955, at the age of 67, Emma Gatewood, who had never hiked a mountain in her life, became the first woman to hike the entire 2,050 miles of the AP. She was also instrumental in establishing the Buckeye Trail in her home state of Ohio. There's even a section named after her! Join us for a documentary highlighting the life of Grandma Gatewood. Her story speaks to the courageous and undaunted spirit of the Appalachian people.
