We have several warm & hospitable hostels along the A-Trail; in Virginia, West Virginia, Vermont and New Hampshire. We would love to have you join us for an overnight stay!

CONTINENTAL DIVIDE TRAIL

 Hiking on the CDT? We have a beautiful camp-style hostel along the Rio Chama in north central New Mexico, near Abiquiu.

About Us

Rutland, VT hostel Our premier hostel location along the Appalachian Trail is Rutland, VT. We've been operating as a hostel since 2012 in that location, offering hikers rides into town and a clean, affordable place to stay and clean up. Downstairs, we also run a small casual café-style restaurant named The Yellow Deli. We also have other locations along the trail: our organic Stoneybrook Farm in Hillsboro, VA (near Harper's Ferry, WV). We also have another WV hostel in development nearby.

Meanwhile, along the Continental Divide Trail, we have a camp-style hostel being developed along the Rio Chama in north central New Mexico, near Abiquiu. Accessible by bus, we also have a mesa property just outside the city limits of Boulder, Colorado, looking toward the Flatirons. In downtown Boulder, we also run a restaurant called The Yellow Deli. Volunteers and work trade is requested there, but come as you are! 

Organic Farms

We have about a dozen organic farms in North America (US, Canada, and Mexico). We welcome visitors and workers to come and stay with us — for a day or forever!
