So I've been thinking about this a long time. Down south they have the AT, the CDT, the PCT, even one proposed that spans the 48 states from east to west. So what do we have? The most gorgeous scenery on earth, and a dearth of trails to experience it. Sure, sure, we've got some doozies, but they're few and literally far between. So where would a single trail that traverses Alaska start? Where would it end? In my mind, I envision something that samples a little bit of all the best we have to offer- seacoast, alpine, boreal forest, tundra, with enough quirky little towns thrown in to make resupply on a thru-hike possible. So how's about it, people? Are we going to see this in our lifetime, or will the good old patchwork quilt of Alaskan landownership make it impossible?
