A resident of New York, Janina Casey has worked in the financial services industry since 1999 and is the managing director of BTIG, an organization that provides financial services to clients worldwide. Janina Casey likes to go on hikes when she's not working.
A favorite hiking spot for many New Yorkers is the Appalachian Trail, a 2,190-mile marked hiking route that passes through 14 US states, including New York, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Maine. It is thought to be the world's longest hiking trail, stretching from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mount Katahdin in Maine, and it receives more than two million hikers each year who complete a part of it.
The Appalachian trail is mainly in the wilderness. However, some sections pass through farms and towns. Annually, thousands of hikers try to cover the entire length of the Appalachian Trail, but just one in four succeeds. It takes between five to seven months to complete the hike. The United States Forest Service, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, and more than 30 hiking clubs maintain the trail, which was inaugurated in 1937 and took more than ten years to construct.
