This is a Hitchhiker Hotel to accomidate hitchhikers along on their travels. There are 3 in it to start with. Please try to keep at least 3 there at all times. It may hold more, it's a good sized box.
Please stamp the EXPLORERS REST stamp and whatever hitchhiker stamps available, but if you take a hitchhiker with you, please leave one in it's place !!
Thank you !

To find this hitchhiker hotel, you must head west on HWY 70 in Morganton. Turn right onto Greenlee Dr. next to INGLES grocery store. Follow the signs to Catawba River Greenway. Park in the first parking lot on your right. To your left here is JUDGES RESTAURANT. We hear it's got great food, though we've not sampled it yet!
Park in the lot and take the trail with the bathrooms on your right and the playground on your left. At the intersection turn right. Follow this paved trail until you see Number "10" on one side and Number "11" on the other. Turn left here and take a mulch trail until you come to a bench. If you sit on this bench and look right you'll see a bridge that crosses the river. Walk to the bridge and look toward the river. See where the wooden part of the bridge ends ?? Walk under the bridge and look at the last row of support beams.... the Hotel is under rocks between the middle and right support beam.

We hope you have enjoyed your "REST".
