Hiker With Fake Leg To Walk Entire AT

Next spring, 34-year-old Scott Rogers will begin a journey down the entire length of the 2,168-mile Appalachian Trail. Like all distance athletes, he will proceed toward his goal one step at a time. What separates Rogers from other hikers, however, is the fact that his steps will be powered by a high-tech prosthetic leg.

If Rogers succeeds in the trek from Georgia to Maine, he will be the first through-hiker to complete the journey with an artificial leg.

“This is the result of a lifelong dream,” said the Georgia native. “I decided that if I were ever to accomplish this, the time is now while I’m still relatively young.”
