Have you ever hiked to McAfee Knob? It is the most photographed place on the Appalachian Trail, and it is maintained by volunteers of the Roanoke Appalachian Trail Club.

Founded by trail pioneer Myron Avery in 1932, RATC protects an iconic resource.
 
RATC's volunteers are stewards of the Appalachian Trail who:
 
* Build and maintain 120+ miles of the AT (including 16 shelters) from Va 611 in Bland County to Black Horse Gap on the Blue Ridge Parkway
* Lead over dozens of free hikes each year
* Have a task force of volunteer ridgerunners who patrol Virginia's Triple Crown (McAfee Knob, Dragon's Tooth and Tinker Cliffs)
* Remove invasive species and protect native plants 
* Defend the trail against a wide variety of threats
* Offer outreach programs with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy
 
Your contribution will buy materials and supplies needed to maintain the AT and spread the word about responsible hiking in our region.
