The Appalachian Trail NJ/NY

New Jersey/New York

The Show

GNJP’s newest show will take the viewer on a journey along the Appalachian Trail in New Jersey and New York, meeting hikers, volunteers and stewards.


Our guide Megan Gunning Patterson will explore glacial lakes and waterfalls, climb mountains, tramp along footbridges and trails, and examine human-made environments such as forest plantations, trails and structures created by the Civilian Conservation Corps under President FranklinRoosevelt.


Our journey will take us from the large-scale grandness of the trail to the up close and personal perspective of the thru hiker and day tripper.


The show is currently in the development stage: fundraising, research, advance work and story & script creation. Filming is planned for May through November 2019 with a completed show for TV for spring of 2020.

Above video is a sneak preview of one of the places we’ll film for The Appalachian Trail NJ/NY – a tranquil view from Stokes State Forest looking west toward the Delaware River & PA. Stokes is rich with wildlife, lakes, streams, miles of trails including the Appalachian Trail & acres of forests – some planted by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Sylvan paradise.
