Earl Zook's Appalachian Trail Walk

To benefit AICR-funded research, Earl Zook of Stephens City, Virginia is planning to hike the Appalachian Trail over the next three years. Earle says he’s been mainly a walker for most of his 87 years, but he is inspired to become the oldest person ever to hike the Trail while raising funds for AICR.

Earl is a very active member of the Kiwannis Club of Winchester. "Every year the club goes to Camp Fantastic to serve breakfast to children who have cancer. And that’s why I wanted to raise money for AICR," he says.

He and a companion began the hike on April 24 in Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia. In the tradition of Appalachian Trail hikers, Earl chose a trail name: "Bald Eagle." This year, Earl will hike south from Harpers Ferry, as far as he can. Then, he says, he’ll finish any remaining southern part if he didn’t make it to the southernmost point of the trail at Springer Mountain, Georgia. He plans to finish the hike at the northernmost point in Maine.

"One nice thing about this hike is that if I get tired, I’ll just stop and rest." Earl and his wife settled in Virginia in 1998 after living in Pennsylvania their entire life. His wife passed away July 2005. Earl runs a specialty advertising business.
