The Visitor Center at the Appalachian Trail Conservancy Mid-Atlantic Regional Office in Boiling Springs, PA, is temporarily closed Monday Friday due to staffing changes. The Visitor Center is open most weekends and holidays from May to October, 10am 4 pm. The Visitor Center will reopen with a new schedule at a date to be determined. The office welcomes anyone to knock who needs to pick up a thru-hiker hang-tag or a parking permit, or to call the office for assistance.

The ATC Mid-Atlantic Office oversees management of the Appalachian National Scenic Trail and its corridor lands (in partnership with the National Park Service, dozens of other land managing agencies, and hundreds of volunteers in a dozen trail-maintaining clubs) from the southern end of Shenandoah National Park at Rockfish Gap in Virginia to the New York-Connecticut border.

Visitor Center Hours:
