A Celebration of the Great Outdoors!
1 May 2005 | by Bruce-49See all my reviews

Anyone who enjoys hiking or camping will take something away from this lively documentary about thru-hikers on the famed Appalachian Trail. Having hiked portions of the trail and enjoyed Bill Bryson's account, "A Walk in the Woods," I was psyched to see what Mark Flagler had done. He has conveyed the experience of thru-hiking without romanticizing it. Parts of the film seem repetitive and there are some stretches that are less interesting than others but everything serves to convey the experience, which itself can seem repetitive and uninteresting at times. For those unfamiliar with the trail, it's a good way to sample it and choose bits and pieces to visit.
