The Appalachian Trail crosses over Newfound Gap Road and straddles the state line between North Carolina and Tennessee for most of its length through the [Great Smoky Mountains National] Park.

Some people try to walk the entire 2,174 mile trail over several months.

Rebecca decided to take the short cut. She stepped across the entire Appalachian Trail in just a few seconds. She’s speedy!
