Last month I wrote about shorter thru-hikes that you can do without quitting your job. This month I’d like to highlight three of those lesser-known trails. While many people think of the Appalachian Trail (AT), Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), and Continental Divide Trail (CDT) when thinking of thru-hiking, there are many who are also aware of the so-called Triple Jewel trails as well: the Long Trail, Colorado Trail, and John Muir Trail. These three shorter thru-hikes are concurrent with the Triple Crown trails for a significant portion of their lengths. Yet, as we touched on last month, this is only a small taste of long-distance trail options in the US and worldwide.
