About Melanie

Melanie Harsha—or better known by her trail name “Peanut”—hails from Tennessee and is no stranger to the outdoors. Her grandfather called her Peanut, so she was given this name on her Appalachian Trail thru-hike in 2016. After her first thru-hike and personal interest in Appalachia, Peanut’s next journey is to continue to be closer to the nature she fell in love with in the Southeast, but with a different landscape. Peanut strives to be part of the solution to maintain and preserve our trails. She is passionate about Leave No Trace principles and educating others in these practices.
