The ECT is a continuous footpath (almost), which crosses sixteen states and three Canadian provinces. The baffling figure of 5400 miles (8700 km) is easy to understand: add up the distances of the Appalachian Trail, Pinhoti National Recreation Trail, Florida Trail and a few more trails and you will end up higher than each of them.
