Video: Hike the Entire Appalachian Trail—in Five Minutes

Stop-motion film "Green Tunnel" takes you through the length of the Appalachian Trail

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?
