Nimblewill Nomad – all 11 America’s National Scenic Trails

His quest began New Years Day, 1998.

Noon Sunday, September 9, 2012, Nimblewill Nomad reached the summit of Grand Monadnock Mountain, New Hampshire, thus completing his trek o’er the New England National Scenic Trail.

And as to the significance of that day? Well, it marks the successful conclusion of Nimblewill’s quest to hike all eleven of America’s National Scenic Trails. He now becomes the second person, behind Bart Smith, to have documented this accomplishment.

You might recall his hiking books: Ten Million Steps and Where Less the Path is Worn.
