My Appalachian Trail Resupply Plan

One of the critical logistics of thru-hiking planning is knowing where you are going to resupply your food and other supplies. There are several methods you can use to resupply during a thru-hike, and the available resupply options will determine which way is best for a trail.

For my Appalachian Trail (AT) thru-hike, I will be using the buying as you go resupply method. The AT has tons of resupply options, so there isn’t a need to drop ship supplies along the trail. There are some locations with limited resupply options, but with planning and a willingness to carry extra food, these locations can be bypassed.

Finding food resupply points along the AT is easy and I doubt anyone would starve to death on the AT. The following table is a partial list of places where you can resupply.
