STRAIGHT THROUGH EACH TRAIL END TO END VARIATION: In this route each trail involved was completed end to end without traveling or skipping back and forth. There were no road walks that avoided the snow and inclement weather along the way. the order of the trails completed was the Appalachian Trail (north), Pacific Crest Trail (north), and the Continental Divide Trail (south). The book Free Outside chronicles the experience of walking 8,000 miles in 8 months.
