Trail Angels

What is a trail angel?

A volunteer who gives kind assistance to our fellow hikers (usually it’s for a hiker(s) that is hiking a segment or the whole trail and could be staying overnight in the town,  it could be a hiker coming thru needing a ride to the local grocery, doctor, shoe store, etc. …., a go-to-person for a hiker!)

A great article from the Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea-Trail:



Another article from the LA Times and Pacific Crest Trail:
