Report an incident

While the Appalachian Trail is a relatively safe place to visit, that does not mean that there are no potential dangers while you are hiking or camping. If you see something, say something — this will help us keep the A.T. as safe as possible for Trail visitors.

  • The Visitor Center is open Thursday-Monday from 9 a.m – 5 p.m. We are closed Tuesday-Wednesday and on major holidays.
  • The Visitor Center restroom and water filling station is available for all visitors.
  • Most areas in the Visitor Center will be temporarily closed for renovations. We hope to have a timeline for reopening these sections in the near future.
  • All guests are required to wear a CDC-approved face covering while inside the Visitor Center. Masks are not required while outside the center, though we encourage continued social distancing.
  • An outdoor information table is also staffed during normal business hours.
  • A.T. halfway point photos have resumed as normal. Please speak with a staff member or volunteer to arrange for your photo to be taken.
  • A.T. hangtags are now available. Attempting A.T. thru-hikers and section hikers can receive an A.T. hangtag by participating in a short Leave No Trace Presentation.
  • In-store purchases will not be available until further notice. ATC merchandise can be purchased directly at Official ATC maps, guides, and other publications can be purchased through our partners at Mountaineers Books.
  • Until further notice, we ask that all hiker mail drops be forwarded to the Harpers Ferry Post Office.
  • Free one-hour parking is available behind the Visitor Center. Additional metered street parking is available nearby.

We thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we restart Visitor Center operations. We will provide more information as it becomes available.

UPDATE: Due to a change in staffing, the Appalachian Trail Visitor Center in Monson, Maine, will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays for the remainder of its season, which ends on October 10, 2021. The Visitor Center will be open on all other days from 8-11 a.m. and 1-5 p.m. On the days the Center is closed, we will post information for long-distance hikers headed to Baxter State Park on the Center’s door.
