I followed the American Discovery Trail on and off throughout the country, starting in Cape Henlopen, Delaware, and finishing in San Francisco, California! 🌎
My route took me through Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, and California. In total, I walked roughly 3500 miles, and I spent exactly 9 months on the road – from March 9th to December 9th.
Ultimately, I deviated from the American Discovery Trail for over 75% of my walk, to save time and miles. You can see my complete route – zoom in on every single road I took – here:
