The Hiker Support portion of Appalachian Services was established in 2001. Our primary service area is from the Atlanta, GA airport to Damascus, VA, however our full range of service is from Jacksonville and/or Daytona Beach, FL to Harper’s Ferry, WV. We also provide service to/from other locations of equal distance (approximately 575 miles) from the Cherokee, NC entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
We provide a wide range of support options to hikers such as shuttles to/from major airports or bus/train stations, re-supply at major road crossings, and vehicle relocations designed to allow you to hike both away from, and toward, your vehicle. The vehicle relocations are especially useful for groups of 5 or more such as hiking clubs, church groups, or college/university outings.
Rate quotes are free for the asking. For an accurate quote please provide us with the planned start and end points, the approximate date(s) our services would be needed, the number of hikers in your group, and the type of service(s) you are interested in. We will also help you decide where to hike and/or assist in planning your hike if you are new to backpacking.
We heartily welcome international travelers/hikers, and have provided services for people from around the world. If you are an international traveler and are considering using our transportation services please see the “International Travelers” tab of this website for more information.
For more information or to schedule a hiker shuttle please click on the “Contact Us” tab at the top of the page. Any information entered into the Contact Us form will not be visible to other users. When emailing please mention something about hiker support in the subject line so our spam filter does not send your inquiry to the “junk mail” box.
Thanks for your interest in our services.
