Comment: We had the pleasure of hosting a through-hiker, who spent two days in our home resting – to restore her energy and to give her knees a much-needed respite. She shared stories from the Trail : fascinating. We can pick up hikers where the Trail crosses I-70 – about 14-15 miles west of Frederick, MD – or at the AT Conservancy HQ in Harpers Ferry, WV.

Trail Angels don’t grant three wishes to thru-hikers on the Appalachian Trail — unless they are wishing for cold water, free food they didn’t have to carry or some other creature-comfort not easily found on the trail.
We’re told: Don’t trust people you don’t know. Never take candy from strangers.
We believe: Trail Angels are different.
Need an example? How about the folks in Virginia at Burkes Garden Central Lutheran Church. They practice what they call “AT Trail Hospitality.”

Comment: We built a log cabin on West Carry Pond, Maine thirty-six years ago and the WCP Shelter has been a project of mine for 12 years. During July, August, September and until October 6th I supply the shelter with gourmet cookies, bars, PBJ’s, and assorted other items about every 2 or 3 days. We sometimes have what we call a barge party and serve an evening meal to anyone in the shelter, weather permitting. I have taken care of serious tooth ache with service to the ER, a stress fracture that needed a couple of days rest and hosted our family and friends as thru hikers. Blue skies, dry feet and safe travels. ME
