Hiker Trash

Hiker trash refers to thru-hikers or section hikers who have been out on the trail for some time and may be in desperate need of a bath and a change of clothes. Their appearance can be mistaken for homelessness at small towns along the trail. They are often given a wide berth by day hikers unaccustomed to the odor.
