This is a sprawling area, and not a particularly useful travel article. Could we move it to Appalachia and focus more narrowly on the cultural region that entails? I think it's worth having an extra-hierarchical article on said region, because it is such a coherent and interesting travel region. I think a more naturally cohesive area to describe would be the parts of the mountains in the north of Georgia through Pennsylvania inclusive. --Peter Talk 16:15, 16 September 2012 (CEST)
I don't think this article is or should be about Canada. The furthest north I'd extend the Appalachians is part of Western New York. The Laurentians are a different, older landform in a different region and should be covered as appropriate in a different article.
- The Laurentians are not geologically part of the Appalachians. If they're covered in this article, they shouldn't be. However, as a completely separate entity, the Appalachians (and the International Appalachian Trail) do extend north into Canada, specifically northwestern New Brunswick, the Gaspé Peninsula, and (depending on how technical you want to get) Western Newfoundland. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 22:16, 26 April 2019 (UTC)
- The Appalachian Trail extends into Canada? I didn't know that. Where does it go after the American part of it ends? Also, how technical do we want to get? To what extent are the Adirondack, Green, White and Speckled Mountains thought of as part of Appalachia,rather than as separate, more eastern mountains? I think of the Alleghenies in Western York as part of the Appalachians, but not the Green Mountains of Vermont. And in Canada, is the mountain range most commonly called the Appalachians, or something else? Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:46, 26 April 2019 (UTC)
