I've found this sentence in Google Books:

Somewhat more permanent are small anodized metal “A.T.” diamonds that the original trailblazers nailed along the path in the 1930s and 1940s.

Context here.

Am I right that "A.T." means "Appalachian Trail" here? The following sentence in Wikipedia made me think so:

The Appalachian National Scenic Trail, generally known as the Appalachian Trail or simply the A.T., is a marked hiking trail in the Eastern United States extending between Springer Mountain in Georgia and Mount Katahdin in Maine.

Yes. The referenced book's context is specifically along the Appalachian Trail, or 'A.T.'. As well, 'A.T.' is common nomenclature for those familiar with the trail.
