Trail Magic — The story of Emma Gatewood
If anyone deserves to be in the movies, it’s Grandma Gatewood!
Grandma Emma Gatewood was the first woman to solo thru-hike the 2,050-mile Appalachian Trail in 1955 at the age of 67 after raising 11 children and surviving domestic abuse! She hiked the 2,000-mile Oregon Trail in 1959 and then hiked the Appalachian Trail TWO more times. Come hear her remarkable story at these events:
