Eastern Continental Trail (ECT) Thru-Hike

The enormous 5,700-mile Eastern Continental Trail (ECT) will be one of the most ambitious undertakings of my entire hiking life, its length totaling more than all other long-distance trails I have hiked—combined! The trail, or more accurately network of trails, has been dubbed "the beast." Beginning in the southernmost point in Key West, Fla., the ECT passes through sixteen eastern states all the way to the tip of Maine and into Canada up to Cape Gaspé, Quebec. Then the trail picks up in Prince Edward Island, next through Novia Scotia, and finally ends in Newfoundland. 

Consider a donation, no matter how small.  Any money raised will be strictly used for the food, lodging, and travel expenses that incur associated with the thru-hike. Your support will mean all the difference! 

Thank you,
