Crosby hiker takes on entire 2,190-mile Appalachian Trail

Only some of the people who set out each year to complete a thru-hike of the entire 2,190-mile Appalachian Trail actually complete it, but this year, Crosby Township resident David Roessler was one of them.

Roessler, 58, began his journey on Feb. 28 and ended on Aug. 26, passing through 14 states along the way.

Roessler completed a thru-hike of the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail in 2015, but said he had wanted to hike the Appalachian Trail ever since he was a kid, mainly just to see if he could actually complete it.
