Hiker Heaven will only be holding packages for guests with reservations under the new format, and as previously stated reservations won’t be available until sometime in April. Probably best not to mail your box here until you have a reservation confirmation.
As a reminder, resupply and mail can be sent to either the KOA in Acton, which is directly on the trail but charges a fee for storing and holding boxes; or the Acton US Post Office, 5.6 miles to the east, which is hitchable or walkable.
Other options include shopping at the Acton Market (there are two across the street from each other near the PO), or taking an Uber or Lyft into larger towns like Santa Clarita or Palmdale. Hikers generally get a group together to keep the costs down.
Vons grocery store delivers to Agua Dulce (but not Acton), and they waive the delivery fee for your first order. There is no longer a grocery store in Agua Dulce, and the Sweetwater Bar & Grill closed recently as well. Fortunately there are three open restaurants right on the trail through Agua Dulce. One serves breakfast. There are hiker-type items and fuel available at the hardware store. The general store is a small convenience store, and under new ownership.
ALWAYS INCLUDE A RETURN ADDRESS!
Please do not have your package require a signature for delivery, just in case we’re not available, unless you have pre-arranged something with us directly.
Outbound mail service will also be available for our guests.
