Caleb is our second NOBO thru-hiker this season. He received a donation from one of our followers and used the proceeds for resupply, a new filter and a bunk for the evening. Thanks for staying! Happy trails.

If you'd like to donate towards a hiker's stay or resupply or to our hostel, or check out our website check the link above. Also thank you to everyone for the donations.


Mischief headed out today, it was great having him stop by as he rides the EDT.


Mischief, Ni**od, and Chase. Chase is our first nobo thru hiker this season! He also was excited to be the recipient of hostel magic that a generous previous guest donated to go to our first NoBo thru hiker of the year. So Chase decided to take a zero and wait out the weather.

If you'd like to donate towards a hiker's stay or resupply or to our hostel, check out our website. Also thank you to everyone who has previously donated!


Our first guest of the year, Mischief! He is bike packing to Key West from D.C. He's got a great story and you should check it out!

Back in September we were mailed this cloth that trail angels got sobos to sign. Bird shot stopped by and I remember seeing his name on it. The trail angels asked us to give it to a sobo that signed it. He was excited to see it and remembered that day!
