About

Hi and welcome to Mountain Crossings at Walasi-yi’s blog. We are  a premiere outfitter located at mile 30.7 of the Appalachian Trail. Lofty, cool, and breezy, the historical stone building housing Mountain Crossings @ Walasi-Yi (prun: Wa La See Yee) was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps beginning in 1934. The facility was completed in 1937, incidentally the same year in which the Appalachian Trail was completed. The A.T. itself passes through the building, marking the only covered portion of the trail’s 2100 plus miles.

Every year Mountain Crossings serves over 2000 hikers on their way to Maine. The staff evaluate over 500 packs each year and ship back over 9000 lbs of gear from the store. The personalized service and the spirit of the store and staff can be felt from the moment you enter the store. Mountain Crossings staff are well versed in hiking this trail, the combined experience of this team exceeds 100,000 miles on the Appalachian Trail. Over the past 27 years Mountain Crossings has helped outdoor manufacturers design product for the long distance hiker.

Over the past seven decades Mountain Crossings has become an important part of the Appalachian Trail history. We invite anyone who has imagined the dream of hiking the A.T. to come and enjoy the view, people, music, gifts, gear and gab at one of the most unforgettable places on the trail, Mountain Crossings @ Walasi-Yi

Mountain Crossings will take appointments with anyone wanting help in preparing for their next thru-hike, section hike, or weekend trip on the Appalachian Trail.
We hope to update this blog often and we will direct posts on issues related to backpacking. Check back often for tips, videos, and more.
