2017 Mountain Crossings Hiker Kick Off

On February 25th from 11AM to 6PM, join Mountain Crossings, an A.T. Community Supporter ​of Blairsville-Union County, for ​their Annual Thru Hiker Season Kick Off Party! Each year, as northbound thru-hikers begin their journeys to Maine, we host a party with live music, food, fun for the whole family, a gear raffle and gear demonstrations by outdoor product companies. 

This year's fun includes good ol' bluegrass pickin' from 1pm to 5pm by Wyatt Espalin and Friends, a s’mores making station and hotdogs on the grill, face painting and a scavenger hunt for the kiddos, and so much more! 

There will also be a gear raffle benefiting the A.T. History Project and disaster relief in Gatlinburg, TN. Gear will include daypacks, hydropacks, clothing, water bottles, cookware and much, much more. Raffle tickets are $10 and can be purchased at Mountain Crossings on the day of the event.

Come join Mountain Crossings at the historic Walasi-Yi Center for a day of reveling in the mountains and celebrating the vibrant culture of the Appalachian Trail! Click here for more information about the event and for directions to Mountain Crossings.
