Did you know the Sequoyah Council has a special recognition for units that hike the Appalachian Trail?
Sequoyah Council established a recognition for those that complete certain portions of the Appalachian Trail. The way the recognition works is once you have completed a segment (listed below), you purchase the patch and the rocker for that segment. The second through seventh segments you just purchase the segment that was completed.
Hike any segment below (all letters) to receive the basic round A.T. patch plus appropriate segment rocker. As additional segments are completed, all seven strips may be earned to complete a circle around the basic patch. Note that there are alternative segments for I-IV located in Virginia.
Mileage per 2017 A.T. Data Book.
