Celebrate the latest AT Community, Round Hill, Virginia. The festival will feature speakers, bands, an old-time music jam, vendors, fun activities, food & drink and equipment demos. In addition, a scavenger hunt (with prizes) will familiarize festival-goers with the work of non-profit environmental organizations, including PATC and ATC. PATC will have a display and has been invited to speak at the festival.
The festival will also be a chance for AT hikers to meet the local community and vice versa. The town of Round Hill sits between two well-known, PATC-run Trail centers—Bear's Den to the south and Blackburn to the north. Round Hill provides access to the AT's "Roller Coaster," a rocky, undulating 13-mile stretch of the trail complete with remarkable overlooks.
Trail backpackers will be offered a shuttle from the trail and be invited to share trail stories, restock supplies, sample local food and beer, recharge phones, camp and more.
