<p><span>&bull;</span><span> Day-hikers scramble over rocky boulders Aug. 5 on the Appalachian Trail below the summit of Mount Katahdin in Baxter State Park in Maine. The sharp rise in the number people using the Appalachian Trail is causing headaches for officials, who say they&rsquo;re dealing with increasing problems along the 2,189-mile footpath.</span></p>
<div><span><br /></span></div>Picture: <p><span>Associated Press</span></p>
<p><span>&bull;Appalachian Trail thru-hiker Karl Berger rests Aug. 7 at a campsite in Maine&rsquo;s Baxter State Park, a day before completing the 2,189-mile hike. Berger&rsquo;s beard attests to the months he spent hiking the Appalachian Trail. &nbsp;</span></p>
<div><span><br /></span></div>Picture: <p><span>&bull;Jackson Spencer poses Aug. 5 atop Mount Katahdin along the Appalachian Trail near Millinocket, Maine. Spencer, who finished the entire trail in just 99 days, said he was looking forward to enjoying the wilderness and getting away from it all. Instead he often found the trail filled with trash, graffiti and people who seemed more interested in partying all night.</span></p>
