Mountain Crossings Hostel on the Appalachian Trail

This is an iconic location early on the AT. The hostel is a row of bunk beds nestled into a long room. A shower and video collection are available. The store includes some backpacking basics to restock on. However one nice opportunity is to ask their staff to give you a gear shakedown. They will go through your gear and help you decide upon was is needed or excess baggage. You can mail your dead weight back home. I sent myself a mail drop of food and supplies here (a tip is a nice gesture for holding the package for you). If you prefer camping, there are sites just up the hill. You can still make use of the shower and laundry for a small fee. The Appalachian Trail goes right through the building. Many hikers send their worn out hiking boots back to be added to the tree. Don't miss this oasis.
