Jack (Adam) Tarlin

Known as "Baltimore Jack,: he hiked the Appalachian Trail 8 times, and has always been available to help new hikers find their trail legs; help with gear; adjust to trail life away from loved ones; deal with safety matters. He loved to walk. He loved the outdoors, especially the trails of our nation, and one trail in particular. He lived in Hanover, NH, a step away from the AT he loved so much.

Gone too soon.

He died right near the trail he adored, doingtrail work to help other hikers, visiting with near and dear trail friends. The AT boards are lit up with posts in his memory. Nearing mid-life, in the mid-1990s, he found something that was exactly whathe wanted to do.

Baltimore Jack became an Appalachian Trail legend. Hiking was both his livelihood and his life. He truly lived to pay it forward, helping other AT hikers along the way.

May his memory be a blessing.

So sorry to hear about Adam's passing. I hope his family is able to find peace. Adam was one of the first people I remember meeting in Elementary school. He was such a funny person and a gifted writer. I can still see him riding a little black bike with a yellow Batman sticker on it.
