Boots Off Hostel Appalachian Trail. Boots Off is a unique hiker's haven and is a beautiful reflection of the artistic talents of the many hikers who've walked up its driveway. New, modem toilets and funky bucket showers (yes, the water is reliably hot) make for a comfortable stay.
A couple of weeks ago, we stayed at Boots Off, a new hostel on Shook Branch Road just south of Watauga Lake. A cozy rustic hostel (group lodging) and gorgeous campground surrounded by large old growth trees in the Cherokee National Forest. Options include tenting, small cabins (bunks only), or a bunk room.
We have backpacking gear , expert trail advice , and even gifts.
The most important features to take into consideration are weight, fit and the boot's construction.
Common area with wifi and DVDs. ***Named one of the top hostels on the Appalachian Trail*** Boots Off Hostel & Campground. It's right for canoeists, kayaker, anglers, and hunters as well as hikers. Buying the right boot is essential for having a good thru-hike on the Appalachian Trail, and there are hundreds of options out there for you.
