Blue Ridge Hiking Company – Appalachian Trail-er
The Trail-er is a ten person bunkhouse located on the Appalachian Trail in Hot Springs, NC. True to its name, the Trail-er is a 1,600+ square foot converted double wide. It serves as a basecamp for Blue Ridge Hiking Company backpacking trips and a bunkhouse for hikers, backpackers, trail runners and paddlers.
Gear and logistics are the two primary hurdles that prevent people from backpacking. The Trail-er offers solutions for both:
- We prepare custom itineraries.
- We rent: backpacks, tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, camp stoves and cookware, and water filters.
- We create and package multi-day backpacking menus.
-You provide: clothes, toiletries, and personal items. And, voila! You're ready to GO!
To access the Appalachian Trail, you can then walk out the front door - or take a shuttle! Our seven passenger vehicles with four-wheel drive will take you anywhere within a two hour radius. (The most popular trailheads are Max Patch, Davenport Gap, and Allen Gap.) From there, you can hike back to the Trail-er or schedule a pick-up!
The Trail-er is available for private group rentals. Call for more information and to make a reservation.
