What is the ‘Corridor’ and ‘Boundary’?
The Corridor is what we call the tracts of land on either side of the Appalachian Trail.  The Boundary is the yellow blazed ‘line’ delineating the separation of our Federal/State/National Park land from privately owned property.

What is a Corridor Monitor?
They are the dedicated volunteers who hike that ‘line’ monitoring and maintaining the Boundary.

Why monitor and maintain the Boundary?
To monitor and protect the Boundary and Corridor from encroachments such as hunting, timber harvesting and ATV use.
