BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Members of the 2019 Honor Hike began their journey Thursday through the Applachian Trail to honor last year’s fallen officers. 

A small group of law enforcement officers will hike one mile for every fallen officer from 2018 covering 150 miles through the trail.

Honor Hike says the goal is to bring awareness to the risk and sacrifice law enforcement officers face while serving their communities.

During the hike, the hikers will carry a Thin Blue Line American Flag and 150 Honor Tags that bear the names of the fallen officers.
