April 22, 2024, is Earth Day.

The area is considered by some to be the pathway’s birthplace, for in 1923, just two years after Benton MacKaye originally proposed the trail, volunteers built the first few miles constructed specifically for the Appalachian Trail in New York’s Harriman/Bear Mountain state parks.
Selected from the archives of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, the National Park Service, historical societies, local Appalachian Trail maintaining clubs, and regional hikers’ private collections, the photographs and corresponding narrative in Leonard M. Adkins’ "Along the Appalachian Trail: New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut" present a historical perspective on what it took to create the trail, including those who lived along it before and during its creation, the thousands of volunteers and arduous tasks they performed, the many more who have enjoyed the trail through the years, and original routes no longer on the present-day Appalachian Trail.

Author Leonard M. Adkins has hiked the entire Appalachian Trail five times and is the author of 21 books about the outdoors and travel, including seven concerning the trail. He has aided the Appalachian Trail Conservancy in protecting rare and endangered plants by being a Natural Heritage Monitor and a ridge runner. He has also been a volunteer trail maintainer and has served on the boards of two Appalachian Trail maintaining clubs.
"Along the Appalachian Trail: New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut" is part of a book series that covers the entire trail. It and the other books are available through local and online bookstores, outdoors outfitters, and Mr. Adkins’ website, www.habitualhiker, where you may learn more about him.
