Appalachian Trail (AT) Backpack Trip - Mt. Rogers National Recreation Area & Grayson Highlands State Park
April 9-13, 2018

Experience 5 days of spring hiking and backpacking along the Appalachian Trail in southwest Virginia. The trek is planned through Mt. Rogers National Recreation Area and Grayson Highlands State Park. The adventure will begin and end in Damascus, "the friendliest town on the Appalachian Trail." Mt. Rogers is the highest point in Virginia (5,729'). Grayson Highlands has been compared to the Montana grasslands by many, with grassy balds speckled with magnificent rock outcroppings and plenty of blue sky. There are also several herds of federal wild ponies in this section, contributing to the uniqueness of this trip. Trip length is about 35-40 miles and offers miles of spectacular views. More information will be available later this summer. Contact us if you would like to be notified when more information becomes available or with any questions you may have. Thanks!

Appalachian Trail (AT) Backpack & Hike Trip - Shenandoah area
April 16-20, 2018

Join us for 4 or 5 days of spring backpacking and hiking in the central section of Shenandoah National Park. The 2018 trek is planned along a section of the Blue Ridge crest on the Appalachian Trail between Swift Run Gap and Thornton Gap. The "off season" is a good time of year for this trip which meanders through the most widely used part of the Park. This is a very scenic section of trail. The pace will be leisurely allowing time to enjoy the gorgeous views from the many summits, rock outcrops and overlooks along the way. There's options for side trips to a waterfall or two as well. Expect spring conditions with spring flowers and leaves emerging, warm days, cool nights, dry trails, and hopefully, sunshine and blue skies! This trip is best suited for those with some backpacking and camping experience. Daily treks will range between 6.5 to 9.5 miles. One should be in good physical condition to enjoy the journey. Backpacks, lightweight camping gear & trail meals can be provided if desired for an additional cost. Space is limited to 4 people. Advance reservations are required by February 1, 2018. Thank you.

The tentative plan is to "meet & greet" Sunday afternoon to check gear and pack. We will be shuttled to the starting point after breakfast on Monday. The 4-day trip will end at Skyland Resort on Thursday afternoon. Those opting for the 5-day trip will enjoy a night of lodging at Skyland Resort. Friday's plan is to day hike the vista filled 9.5 mile section of the AT to Thornton Gap. We expect to come off the trail Friday afternoon. Please note that dinner and breakfast meals associated with lodging Sunday and Thursday are not included in these trip packages. We plan to dine out. Each person will be responsible for paying for their own meals. Contact us for more information or with any questions you may have.
