Hi Everyone!


My name is Berkley Aiken (Trail name= Ten, or Baiken (“bacon”) for short) and I’m thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail this year. If all goes as planned, I will be a proud graduate of the 2,000-miler club, Class of 2017! And this will house my¬†journey along the way.

As I take a 6-month walk in the woods, I wanted to give back to something bigger than me. I decided to raise funds for the ATC (Appalachian Trail Conservancy), to support the amazing organization that maintains this trail and it’s community. Here’s to all the Trail Clubs, RidgeRunners, and staff of the ATC — Thank you!

Let’s Hike!
