Car Spotter Form

Car spotters

Hikers: The MSTA keeps a confidential list of volunteer car spotters to assist day and continuous hikers. Contact the End-to-End Coordinator ( below ) via e-mail, cell, or text, to make arrangements to contact some of these volunteers. You are expected to cover direct expenses such as gas. We ask for a minimum of three days’ notice: two weeks is often more helpful. No liability is assumed by Mid State Trail Association, Inc. or our volunteers. 

Volunteers: If you would like to volunteer to assist End-to-End hikers, please complete the Car Spotter Application (choose Word or PDF format). Your contact information will only be shared with End-to-End hikers requesting specific assistance. 

Car spotters (or Trail Angels) assist hikers on the Mid State Trail in various ways.  Some meet hikers at a pre-arranged spot and drop them off so that the hikers can hike back to their vehicle. Some provide direct help to backpackers such as a tenting spot, a meal, a dropbox , laundry, a place to sleep...  The list of car spotters specifies what each person wishes to offer the hiker.  The MST Facebook group ( ) also provides assistance in various degrees.
