Roanoke Appalachian Trail Club


The Roanoke Appalachian Trail Club is a recreational hiking association of volunteers who preserve and improve the Appalachian Trail as the nation's premier, continuous, long-distance footpath. Founded in 1932, the Club is celebrating more than 75 years of service and adventure on the AT. RATC maintains about 121.2 miles of the A.T. from Blackhorse Gap on the Blue Ridge Parkway south to Pine Swamp Branch Shelter and from Pearisburg at the New River south to Virginia 611 in Bland County. General meetings are held quarterly, and maintenance work hikes are monthly.
