Franklin Trail Days is A Celebration of the Appalachian Trail
Historic Franklin, North Carolina
March 20 - April 22, 2017

Come to Historic Franklin, North Carolina for Franklin Trail Days Celebration and the annual Hiker Bash as we celebrate our appreciation of Appalachian Trail Hikers. As an Appalachian Gateway Community, Franklin opens the town to all hikers of the Appalachian Trail as you start your journey north to Katahdin.

Franklin is located 11 miles from the AT and is considered a welcome respite from the cold and usually wet early spring weather. You'll find plenty of good food, great conversation and lots to do during this weekend celebration.

This years event will be a month long celebration. Make plans to come and explore the Appalachian Trail through local hikes, documentaries and more. Or you could sit around and talk with Appalachian Trail thru-hikers before they press on towards their goal of completeing the 2,200 mile journey!
