​Appalachian Trail Tribute Garden

ATC Porch

The Appalachian Trail Tribute Garde​n​ will be located at Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) Headquarters in historic Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.

The garden ​will be 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 ​will be 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 ​will be a space where cherished loved ones, volunteers, members, hikers and staff can be celebrated and remembered. It ​will also serve 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.

Net proceeds from this project will support the work and ongoing mission of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.
