Jeff Nicholson’s business Aquablaze Solutions sells canoes and kayaks to Appalachian Trail hikers. The boats allow the hikers to traverse the 168 miles to West Virginia on the water instead of on the trail. Waynesboro is the only part of the trail where you can travel on the river.

Last year, Waynesboro native Jeff Nicholson was hanging around town when he saw a few hikers with a sign at the intersection of Rosser Avenue and Main Street. It read, “We will buy your boat.”
The individuals wanted to purchase a canoe or kayak to ride the South River all the way to Harper’s Ferry, W.Va., all part of the Appalachian Trail’s approximately 2,200-mile path from Georgia to Maine.
