We stayed Friday night at this hostel in Knoxville, Maryland, just across the Potomac River from Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, where we planned to spend Saturday at the 75th Anniversary celebration of the Appalachian Trail.
Meet others in Nashville, middle Tennessee, and beyond, interested in backpacking. We also sometimes simply hike. We also kayak and kayak camp sometimes. But mostly we backpack! Talk about locations, equipment, tents, hammocks, packs, stoves, cameras and photography, clothing, weather, wildlife, food, recipes, etc., and find fellow hikers to take trips with. Classes, slideshows, and backpacking opportunities year round are available.
