America's Wild Spaces: Appalachian Trail

Cloud shadows move over North Carolina hills on the Appalachian Trail ridgeline.
For more than half of the U.S. population, the Appalachian Trail is less than a day's drive away. Yet despite its proximity to many major cities like Atlanta and Boston, few truly know the splendor of this national treasure. NGC takes viewers off the beaten track to discover the remote and often unknown corners of the 5-million-step journey.
