In the Appalachian Province more than three million visit the Appalachian Trail each year, “Approximately three million people visit the Trail every year”. (Media Room). The severity of some areas with flooding leads a risk of landslides, erosion, falling trees, and even more. This puts hikers at risk, not even knowing when a natural disaster could occur while on the trail. With the use of DEM (Digital Elevation Model) and Arc Hydro Tools, and past reported areas of flooding we can see where flooding may occur again.
