If sending items ahead by United States Postal Service (US Mail), UPS or FedEx send it as follows:
c/o Hiker Hostel

Roan Mountain, TN 37687
Shipping Gear Home
Many hikers find, after arriving at the hostel, that they have over-packed and need to send some items home or to a trail town further north. We’ll be happy to do that for you. We generally have miscellaneous USPS flat rate boxes that you may use to send unwanted items or even travel clothes home.
We keep white gas and denatured alcohol at the hostel.
We do not charge for this fuel, we only ask that you do not abuse this
service, so that we may be able to continue to provide fuel for everyone.
Hikers who require canister fuel can also purchase fuel at the hostel. We carry JetBoil canisters.
Well-mannered, house-broken and “relatively” clean pets are allowed at the Hiker Hostel. Please have a leash available in case there is a need for it. The dog-owner is solely responsible for the actions of his/her dog. If any damage is done to the hostel or other hikers’ gear, compensation will be expected.
