Many hikers find, after arriving at the hostel, that they have over-packed and need to send some items home or to a trail town further north.

We’ll be happy to do that for you.

We only use USPS flat rate boxes.

We charge the USPS fee plus a small handling charge.


We keep white gas and denatured alcohol at the hostel.
We charge for this fuel, at the rate of $.30 an ounce
Hikers who require canister fuel can also purchase fuel at the our General Store. We carry JetBoil canisters.


Well-mannered, house-broken and “relatively” clean pets are allowed at the Hiker Hostel. Please have a leash available in case there is a need for it. The dog-owner is solely RESPONSIBLE for the actions of his/her dog. If any damage is done to the hostel or other hikers’ gear, compensation will be expected.
