Plot Summary

In this new comedy adventure, celebrated travel writer, Bill Bryson, instead of retiring to enjoy his loving and beautiful wife, and large and happy family, challenges himself to hike the Appalachian Trail - 2,200 miles of America's most unspoiled, spectacular and rugged countryside from Georgia to Maine. The peace and tranquility he hopes to find, though, is anything but, once he agrees to being accompanied by the only person he can find willing to join him on the trek - his long lost and former friend Katz, a down-on-his-luck serial philanderer who, after a lifetime of relying on his charm and wits to keep one step ahead of the law - sees the trip as a way to sneak out of paying some debts and sneak into one last adventure before its too late. The trouble is, the two have a completely different definition of the word, "adventure". Now they're about to find out that when you push yourself to the edge, the real fun begins.

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia The book "A Walk in the Woods" was optioned in 1998 as a project to team Robert Redford and Paul Newman together for the third time. However, years of hurdles getting the film made and Newman's declining health before his death in 2008 ended the potential Redford and Newman reunion. Newman was intended for Nick Nolte's role.

Goofs The map shown in the shelter is very inaccurate. It does not show the Appalachian Trail passing through West Virginia, New Jersey, or Connecticut. It also reverses New Hampshire and Vermont. See more »

Quotes Bill Bryson: [At night, when a female hiker is loudly singing, in an annoying tone, at a late hour] Tomorrow morning, we get up early, before she's awake, and we get a headstart, and lose her.
Stephen Katz: That's a good idea. Better than my idea.
Bill Bryson: What was your idea?
Stephen Katz: We kill her, and steal her Pop Tarts.
