A tale of adventure and deep connection on New York State's 358-mile Long Path. Roughly only twenty other people had thru-hiked the trail when Heather and Scott set out, as a couple, in autumn of 2017. Together they would navigate not only the terrain, but the challenges that come with working together as a team, and revel in the natural beauty of the Hudson Valley.
