Appalachian Trail Hike
April 5 - April 7$225
Are you daydreaming about how to spend those long spring and summer weekends? If so, this trip is for YOU!
You will arrive in the picturesque mountain town of Hot Springs on Friday afternoon and check in to a historic b&b with your fellow travelers. We will then all meet for dinner and discuss the
weekend to come. Here we will fully outfit you with brand new backpacking equipment and show you everything that there is to know. The following morning we will rise early with the
sun and get a delicious breakfast and coffee on our way out of town. We will then turn onto the famous Appalachian Trail that runs right through the town of Hot Springs and hike into the
breathtaking Blue Ridge mountains towards the Tennessee border. A fresh and hot lunch will be prepared for you under the warm afternoon sun before making our final leg of the journey.
As the afternoon gets long we will arrive in the valley where your camp will have been set up for you earlier in the day by one of our porters. Your guide will make you a gourmet dinner
as you watch the stars slowly begin to appear. The rest of the evening will be spent by the warm fire, getting to know your fellow travelers. On our final day, we will reach the crescendo of our hike as we summit Max Patch, a gorgeous high alpine bald with 360 degree mountain views. Light snacks will be served here before descending to our transportation back to Hot Springs, where we will conclude the trip soaking our tired legs in a natural hot spring. This will be the best weekend of your year, by far.
