Do you aspire to hike the entire Appalachian trail, but simply don’t have the time? Kevin Gallagher just did you a huge favor: His stop-motion film Green Tunnel is a lyrical, aptly-named trip through the entire AT—all in under five minutes.

You’ll see airy balds, fields of flowers, and —yes—miles and miles of trail boring through an endless green forest. Watch:

Just like the real thing, minus the hiker names, rodent-filled shelters, and sweat-earned sense of accomplishment. What do you think, AT finishers: Did this bring back fond memories?
