Benton MacKaye Interview 1975
 
05:16
The Appalachian Trail began as an ambitious idea for a trail that would run along the ridge back of the Appalachian Mountains. This trail would allow those in the city to seek recreation, and retreat from the physical and mental worries of a life inside the congested cities of the East. The Trail was brought from imagination to fruition by the hands of the many people inspired by such an ideal. Interviewed in 1975 by Lester Holmes, Benton MacKaye, the visionary behind the creation of the Appalachian Trail gives his insights into the journey the Trail itself has taken.
