I’m in a small town in NC that is right on the AT – I actually walked from the trail right into the town – most trail towns are 5-10 miles from a spot where the AT crosses a road and to get to town you can hitchhike or look for a shuttle.
What a luxury to walk into town!!
Staying at a historic home that is a hiker friendly B&B – the Sunnybank Inn.
That sounds wonderful and well deserved!
