Experience the A.T. in Boiling Springs

Boiling Springs, an official Appalachian Trail Community, is home to the Mid-Atlantic Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC). Stop by for trail maps, day trip suggestions, and free parking permits. This town offers the beautiful Children's Lake, the pre-Revolutionary War Carlisle Iron Works Furnace, and dining options including the quaint Caffe 101 and the historic Boiling Springs Tavern.

Hike the A.T. by following blazes across Bucher Hill Road, along the famous fly-fishing stream Yellow Breeches Creek, then along Children's Lake. Continue past the gazebo to the ATC. You can also head south on the A.T., crossing a beautiful historic stone bridge, zig zagging through farm fields & taking a steady climb up South Mountain to Center Point Knob.
