Bears Den Hostel

Stayed a night at this hostel which is basically trail side from Bears Den Rocks. Looks like an old castle. It has a 24hr hiker room with bunks, a shower, a TV, and a heap of movies. Very friendly and accommodating staff for the big crowd of hikers we had there.

They do a hiker special which is a bunk, a shower, laundry, a large pizza, a soda, and a pint of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream for $30. YES PLEASE. I went with a supreme and then coffee caramel buzz. Kind of sickening how easy it was to put away both.

They also have large poster boards for all the thru hikers to sign each year. I put up a pic of an old year (2nd to last) as well so you can see just how many potential hikers could be behind me….if the Smokies didn’t get them anyways…
