The members of the Roanoke Appalachian Trail Club are avid hikers and backpackers. We love the outdoors and we get out and hike and enjoy the trails of western Virginia as much as possible. Our club also maintains 120 miles of the Appalachian Trail as well as 16 shelters along the trail. The club was founded in 1932. We always welcome guests to come along on our hikes. We usually have two group hikes each weekend.
