Conservation group wants to extend Appalachian Trail to Gulf of Mexico



Hikers may be able to reach the Gulf of Mexico by staying on the Appalachian Trail.

The trail currently stretches from Maine to north Georgia.

A national conservation group wants to buy land along the Chattahoochee River.

This would give hikers a way to reach the Gulf by kayaking and more trails.

The group said the new route could become a reality within the next decade.
