Hiking the E-Paths for a Cause: Join Us on This Journey!

We’re happy to introduce a remarkable project that’s all about adventure, community, and giving back.
N. Andrew Walsh, a musician and dedicated long-distance hiker, is embarking on an unprecedented journey along the E-Paths that promises to make a significant impact on both the world of hiking and humanitarian efforts.

The Mission: Hiking the E-Paths End to End

Starting at Germany’s Kap Arkona and ending in Bolsano, Italy, Andrew will hike the entire length of the E10 trail over several months. This incredible feat aims to achieve what’s never been documented before – completing an entire E-Path as a single through-hike. Under the name “Trekking for Europe,” the project aims to raise the visibility of the E-paths through advocacy and fundraising, so that this incredible resource can be shared by hikers all over the world. 

Two Key Goals: Trail Advocacy, Infrastructure Development

This journey isn’t just about personal adventure; it has these main objectives:
1. Supporting the Journey: Funds raised will cover necessities like food, fuel, and occasional overnight stays at campsites during the hike.
2. Supporting the Trails: Funds from this campaign will support the ERA and local organizations to expand and improve the E-Paths, building an international network for cultural and ecological exchange.

Join the Adventure!

You can subscribe to the Trekking for Europe blog on Substack, and get real-time updates on social media with the Trekking for Europe Mastodon page and BlueSky.
