A 5-Year-Old Boy Goes Hiking The Appalachian Trail is a popular hiking route in the United States. On October 16th, 2021, by Nicola M. It’s not only about going to the park and playing in the neighborhood when you’re a kid. Going up into the mountains is also a great way to experience it.
5-year-old Harvey Sutton, popularly known as “Little Man” in court, accomplished something that not every 5-year-old gets to do. Only a few persons were able to complete “the world’s longest hiking-only route,” which stretches for 2,193 miles.
The Appalachian Trail is a popular hiking trail in the United States. Harvey and his parents, Josh and Cassie Sutton, spent a couple of months hiking the Appalachian Trail.
During their hike, they met another hiker named Karl Donus Sakas, also known as the “Sugar Man,” who completed the leg from Pennsylvania to Maine with them. They asked him to hide little surprises along the trail and create treasure maps to keep Harvey entertained.
Since Harvey is the youngest to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail, he had his photo taken with the oldest hiker to make the journey. The Appalachian Trail Museum posted on Aug. 10, “This is Nimblewill Nomad & Little Man at the Appalachian Trail Lodge in Millinocket, Maine.
NN will shortly become the oldest known person to thru-hike the A.T. and Little Man the youngest.”Dale “Greybeard” Sanders, who completed the hike in 2017 at the age of 82, said, “It’s going to change his (Harvey’s) life forever, and his parents’ life, too. The kid went through some hardships, but don’t we all? Hardships make us stronger. That kid is going to smile through life.”
