Welcome to Bears Den!

We provide a gateway connecting people to the "rollercoaster" section of the Appalachian Trail. Bears Den is owned by the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and operated by the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club. The historic stone mansion sits on 66 acres and is 150 yards from the AT and a beautiful, westward-facing overlook of the Shenandoah Valley and Blue Ridge Mountains. We offer an array of services including a drop-in long-distance backpacker hostel with full services, accommodations for group or private party rentals, a primitive campground, a rustic cottage and a contact for all your hiking, shuttle, and slackpack needs.
