After hard farm work, an abusive marriage, and a lifetime of the woods as refuge Emma "Grandma" Gatewood first stepped onto the Appalachian Trail "as a lark" when she was 67. She hiked the AT three times total - 2 through hikes and 1 section. The lady called attention to the trail when the rest of the US was driving and watching TV.
