Trailplace.com   Being rebuilt. There is presently very little there!!!
This big site has everything including journals (although I could not find any 2001 journals), lists of former hikers, a usenet  and mailing list (where hikers and wannabe hikers can exchange ideas),  and a forum section where newbies can have their questions answered by former AT hikers. There is a directory of people providing shuttles and of people who will help get hikers to the trail.  This site is run by WINGFOOT who is either revered or loathed by members of the hiking community

In addition to journals (73 journals by 2001 AT thru hikers and 67 by 2002 hikers), this site has a photo gallery and a hiker directory containing the names of nearly 500 thru hikers from 1999.with many photos and addresses. Also has forums and book references.Lotsa great features here.

This site has the lournals of this section hiker from Springer GA to Port Clinton PA and a fantastic collection of photos covering that section. If you need a picture of some shelter, it is likely here. There is a great selection of useful links for hikers. In addition there is a number of features and and articles on such things as hiking with a partner, gear, carrying weight, calories, ogs on trail etc.

This site hosts mailing lists on a number of National Scenic Trails including the AT. A few mailing list members have journals or other pages hosted by this site.

Website of the organization responsible for the trail, and coordinating the activities of the trail clubs who maintain the trail. Contains maps, and trail guides. etc

This site seems to have been created to fill the void when Trailplace became inactive.  There are quite a few features but the main one is the planning forums. Very useful site

There are Light Backpackers and then there are Ultra LIght ones. John's site has all you need to know. Even if you dont want ot do the Ultra light thing, this site  has some useful info to help cut your weight.

This private website has many links and features. However, it does not seem to have been updated is some time.

The AT section of this site has tons of links to journals and other trail related sites.

This is really great reading.  A former thru hiker talks about trail life and the effect it has on people. He seems to cover everything. Really is enlightening. Highly recommended.

Website belonging to FANNYPACK 96, one of the most well known trail angels, who can be found all along the trail year after year. He has problems keeping it up to date because he is so often out on the trail. Lots of links and original stuff.

Site created by PADDLER to host journals, share trail stories, talk about gear, etc

This detailed journal is chock full of information about the trail and the history of the area being hiked through. Gives a real feel for what was going on in 1999 on the AT. Great pictures too.

This experienced hiker and backpacker combined her hike with a chance to meet lots of AT_L mailing list friends and other friends and relatives. She managed to have many of them join her for a day or two and also to slack her on a number of occasions. Journal is hosted by Backcountry.net

The daily entries are a little short for the person who likes to read jouranls. His 13 year old son joined him for one month in July and revitalized his hike and that of many others.

Their journals are separate but on the same website and are designed to allow easy switching from one to the other so as to compare what they say.  They got off the trail in June for two weeks to get married.

We never met this girl but her website is great. In addition to her journal she has her pictures in a scrapbook, each page of which has a few pictures and excerpts from her journal as well some amusing artwork and  animation and some poetry, etc. Wonderful place evidenced by the fact that there have been 9500 visitors.
This 1999 thru hiker created and maintains this great site.

He took 11 months to do the trail and carried the heaviest pack on the trail. He  is now posting his journal piece by piece. Fascinating reading.

A few hikers were named YOGI, and two of them had journals at trailplace, this lady being one of them. She also has her journal at trailjournals where she has the advantage of posting photos, including a number of PATCH  who was killed in an accident in December 2000.
          Quite a few journals at this site  (73 journals by 2001 AT thru hikers and 67 by 2002 hikers) Allows you to easily see where the different hikers were on the same day.
          This was once the most comprehensive AT site and included many journals. It was dismantled by WINGFOOT who runs the site and is being re-built.Our journal refers to many journals at this site but they are no longer available.
