The AT in NJ

The Story

GNJP’s newest show will take the viewer on a journey along the Appalachian Trail in New Jersey, 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 Franklin Roosevelt.


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 2020 with a completed show for TV for spring of 2021.
