    Default Rusty’s Hard Time Hallow is currently reopened

    Rusty’s Hard Time Hollow in Virginia 16.7 miles south of Rockfish Gap is currently up for sale.

    Rusty has had health issues recently and will be moving once his property has sold. He has listed it with a realtor and there is a promotional website. You can view the listing and see a video online at www.rustyshardtimehollow.com.

    Rusty wants 2019 hikers to visit since this might be his final year owning the property. He especially would like to see previous hikers and friends.

    This is one of the original AT hostels from days past; visit before it becomes history.

    Call and talk to Rusty at 540-377-9742 if you have questions or would like to visit or stay.

    To get to Rusty’s from Maupin Field Shelter turn left on fire road (just north of Maupin Field Shelter), walk 1.2 miles west to the Blue Ridge Parkway, then turn left (south), walk or hitch the parkway 1.3 miles to Rusty’s driveway on the left, at BRP mile 16.7. Gravel driveway has a gray, pipe gate with Rusty’s name and AT stickers on one end. Thru-hikers and section hikers are welcome. The no-trespassing signs are for the non-hikers. Rustic hostel includes a cabin, bunkhouse, springhouse, outhouse, rainwater shower, tent sites available. Shuttles to Waynesboro occasionally and back to the fire road, if you pitch in for gas. Rides to nearby Sherando Lake for swimming during hot weather. Donations for stay are encouraged. No illegal drugs permitted on the premises.

    I have just been advised that Rusty has putting his place up for sale. In the meantime he is not allowing hikers.
    Confusion, and I don't think it's my summer head cold.

    First line says "now taking" and second line says "he is not allowing".

    Thank you for pointing that out. I think I have made the proper corrections and updated the first post.

    Aw man, I hope another hiker gets it. I loved that place back in '98.
    Don't take anything I say seriously... I certainly don't.

    He is looking for another hiker to purchase it. Unfortunately, that does not look like the case.

    Hiked an old alignment of the AT between Harper's Creek and Tye River earlier this year and came across an old, deteriorating sign for Rusty's.
