I think the confusion comes from the fact that the Appalachian trail is located near Aquehonga boy scout camp near the tristate border of NY, PA and NJ.
The name of the Staten Island "Order of the Arrow" district is the Aquehonga district. Some people may have made some erroneous assumptions because of this use of Aquehonga.
The Closest the Appalachian Trail comes to Staten Island is where it starts heading East near Poughkeepsie NY.
