The Further Shuttle
The Further Shuttle Appalachian is a commercially-insured shuttle company for hikers in Georgia and North Carolina. We provide pick-up and drop-off for the Appalachian, Benton MacKaye, and Pinhoti Trails. We shuttle hikers to all accessible gaps and trailheads. We are knowledgable, prompt, courteous and pet friendly. Our hiker services include shuttles to and from the Atlanta airport, the north Atlanta MARTA stations (North Springs and Silver Springs) and the Gainesville Amtrak and Greyhound stations.
We also offer slackpacking, daily pick-ups and drop-offs, and shuttles to town for resupply or lodging. We can help you plan your hike, whether it's is your first time out, or if you're looking for ideas for your next hike.
We drive safely, and follow all rules of the road to ensure you have a safe and pleasurable trip. We also offer parking for section hikers at our house for no added fee. We can hold your gear, bring it when you need it, and help lighten your burden along the way. Our phone numbers are 772-321-0905 and 706-745-3306, just call or text. We love to help!
Canister fuel available in 4oz or 8oz canisters, also Heet and alcohol, at cost. Mountain House meals available.
The Grateful Hiker Hangout is in Town Square, downtown Blairsville at the Seasons Inn Plaza. We have free coffee and donuts for hikers. It's a place to get a shuttle, use the computer, sort your gear or mail drops or just a place to trade stories with other hikers. We'll have more information about our services as the thru-hiker season gets closer.
Peace, and safe travels.
