Another Route to Katahdin

Google Maps GA to ME

I like the new-ish feature on Google Maps that calculates walking routes and times between landmarks. Should take 18 days and 10 hours to walk from Springer Mountain, Georgia to Mt. Katahdin, Maine. Could have used this and shaved about a thousand miles from our trip.

Walking directions to Mt Katahdin

There you go. Now we know.


  1. ahh hhaa...that is golden. who knew it could be that easy. sheesh. And to think, we spent all that time going up and over ridges.

    I always liked the one that you used to be able to put into google maps for NY to London, that would actually tell you to "swim across the Atlantic". I guess for legal reasons they had to remove that recommendation.

  2. Wow, if I get a couple weeks off I'll just head down to Springer for another thru-hike. No, I've got it! I'll take a summer off and do a double yo-yo. Did Old Eagle pull that off? He was on yo-yo-yo when I saw him in 2007...
