I've had two attempts at thru hiking the Appalachian Trail. My first attempt, in 2013, ended around mile 125 due to a knee injury. My second attempt, in 2016, ended around mile 554 due to illness.
If you are looking for basic information about the trail, here is a link to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy website.
There is also a lot of information about the trail, and photos of the trail, on WhiteBlaze.
