APPALACHIAN TRAIL

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.

PACIFIC CREST TRAIL

Still in its infancy, we are just getting going with a hostel for PCT hikers. Bring your skills with work/trade. We also have a nearby avocado ranch in northern San Diego county if you need to rest up before continuing your hike.

Work Trade

Work Trade program When staying at any of our hostels, we don't ask for money, although donations are appreciated to help us carry on. But in exchange for your stay, we ask that you contribute some of your time and skills to help further our efforts. Whether it's carpentry or mechanical skills, helping out on the farm with garden or animal chores, or simply helping us make the meal and clean up afterward. We appreciate your help in keeping us going. 

If you need a greater time of recharging, we invite you to stay on for several days. Please help us out and improve the hostel so other hikers' experience will be even better. We appreciate any time donations anyone can give. But again, it's not an obligation or expectation — just whatever you can do.

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!
