Hiker Heaven

Memories Made Here

Hiker Heaven is Closed

Our lives and our hearts have been very blessed to have a National Scenic Trail going through them:  the 2,650 mile long Pacific Crest Trail.  For the past 18 years our family has hosted the intrepid adventurers who are attempting to walk the trail’s length. This experience has changed our lives, opened up new worlds of possibilities, and gifted us with friends from all over the world.


But all good things must come to an end – to make way for other good things. In this case, our new grandson and hiking plans of our own.  So, for the first time in 18 years, we both regret and rejoice to say we will not be hosting hikers this year or in the foreseeable future.


Hikers should not despair, however, as the KOA in Acton, directly next to the trail where it crosses Soledad Canyon, is stepping up to fill the void, with many things that hikers need:


· Will accept and hold packages

· Camping

· Showers

· Laundry


A list of local trail angels is also being developed, and will be shared at discreet locations along the trail.  Until then, the KOA is the best resource.
