​Appalachian Trail Tribute Garden

ATC Porch

The Appalachian Trail Tribute Garde​n is located at Appalachian Trail Conservancy Headquarters in historic Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.

The garden is a permanent public memorial honoring those who have walked on, helped protect or been inspired by the Appalachian Trail. For hikers and guests alike, it is a lovely and tranquil space to savor the morning sun or evening breeze while enjoying the views of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains.

The garden is a space where cherished loved ones, volunteers, members, hikers and staff can be celebrated and remembered. It also serves as a beautiful and fitting place to commemorate the generosity of donors who support the Appalachian Trail Conservancy’s legacy and future.

​​Groundbreaking ​will occur in Fall 2017.

You can have a brick in the Tribute Garden engraved with a custom message!


To honor your loved one, pay tribute to someone special, celebrate your own AT hike or support the work and ongoing mission of the ATC, consider purchasing an engraved brick for the walkway of the Appalachian Trail Tribute Garden. Bricks are available starting at a $​300 donation.
