    Default Parking at Atkins, VA, and Shuttle from Pearisburg to Atkins

    Hello, AT Companions,

    I'm looking for a safe place to park near the trail in Atkins, VA (I-81, near The Barn restaurant vicinity) for a week (not yet defined) this month. At the end of the trip, I'll need a shuttle ride from Pearisburg back to Atkins. Any suggestions?

    Do you know if Ram Bunny is still operating in that area and do you have an email address?

    Thanks,

    Dan (from Georgia)

    Thank you for your input, folks. Keep inputting, if you have info.

    It looks like the Barn Restaurant is closed permanently - that's sad, because we ended our last trip there with a combined breakfast lunch.

    I'll check on the Relax Inn tomorrow. If it's open, I'll then see about arranging for a shuttle with Don Raines.

    Thank you.

    Relax Inn at I-81, Atkins, VA (or Rural Retreat) is open for AT parking at a modest daily rate.
