A buddy and I are doing the section of AT throuogh Maryland and would like to head sobo from PenMar to HF WV. We only have one vehicle so I'd ike to leave it for pick up at HF and get a shuttle up to PenMar.

Anyone familiar with doing this? Who provides shuttle services like this - anyone on this board?

We usually do loop hikes so this is the first time we've had to figure out the logistics of one vehicle for a linear hike.

I've done a few sections in Maryland as overnighters and usually hike in/hike back out.

Being new to this board, I'd like to say thanks in advance for any responses... :)

Have you consulted the ATC Shuttle List (http://www.appalachiantrail.org/docs/default-document-library/at-shuttles-parking-vandalism-4-25-13.pdf)?

BTW welcome to WB! Since you're new, you may not have seen that there's a forum for hikers seeking shuttles entitled Ride Board (http://www.whiteblaze.net/forum/forumdisplay.php?447-Ride-Board). You could post your request there if you don't find anything from the ATC shuttle list.

I plan on bicycling that shuttle when I do that section next month.

Teahorse hostel does shuttles for a good rate.
