It's time again for an On the Brink Quiz! Today's quiz tests your knowledge about the Appalachian Trail which is considered the longest continuous hiking trail in the world. I have hiked several parts of the trail but never the whole length. Now that summer is here, I know some of my readers will be out there stomping the paths. The answers to the quiz will be in the comments section of the blog. Links to previous On the Brink Quizzes follow the questions.

1. How long is the Appalachian Trail?

2. Which states does the Appalachian Trail traverse?

3. Who developed the original idea of the trail in 1921?

4. The trail is part of a special U.S. designation of trails. Name the designation.

5. What is the name of the site where the trail starts (or ends) in Georgia?

6. The author Bill Bryson wrote a popular book about the Appalachian Trail. Name the book.

7. How long does it typically take to hike the entire trail?

8. Jennifer Pharr holds the record for the fastest time to complete the entire trail with a support crew. How long did it take her?

9. What percent of the through hikers who attempt the entire trail are female?

10. Which state has the longest section of the trail?
