Plan to join them for hiker-themed games, movies, lectures and prizes. And for anyone having trouble with their gear, check out the free gear repair area.

The movie on Friday night, April 3, is The Long Start to the Journey. In February 2013, filmmaker Chris Gallaway embarked on an Appalachian Trail thru-hike. With the traveling community of other AT nomads, he walked through a fierce winter blizzard, the epidemic Norovirus, monsoon summer rains and a resulting plague of mosquitoes. Gallaway presents his recently finished film, exploring the downsides as well as the rich rewards of walking for seven months on the Appalachian Trail ... and explains why anyone would want to do such a thing. Lots of fun activities planned. Check them out.  AT Founders Bridge Festival

  1. Thank you for all these details about this fest. I didn’t know about it. Well, I usually attend so many events at SF event venues. Most of them are art events. I have also participated in few of them.
