All throughout the year we see through hikers who are making their trek along the AT, but there’s a few months that are super special to us. A brave few souls trickle in on their NOBO (northbound) journey as early as late January before the floodgates open in February, March, and April. During these times we get to meet these wandering souls and share laughs and stories with people from all over the world. Hikers stop in all through the summer before we see our SOBO (southbound) folks in the late summer and early fall. While we welcome one and all, there’s a special place in our heart for all our through hikers!
