The world-famous AT, as it is affectionately known, passes from one end of the county to the other on its route from Georgia to Maine. Thousands of hikers pass along our ridges, slopes and valleys each year. Many of them spending a night or more at the hikers' hostel in Hot Springs. The Appalachian Trail and many other trails are easily accessible to visitors. There are 65 miles of AT in Madison County. Contact the U.S. Forest Service in Hot Springs for more information.
