If you have been with us for a while, you may know that we have a strong history of leading hikes throughout Southwestern North Carolina. We have decided, after much success, to branch out and try new things, including a guided kayak trip (coming Summer 2017).

What to Expect on one of our Adventures

To attend each adventure, you must first sign-up for a spot. Some of our adventures will have a cap due to available resources, location specifications and so on. To enroll in one of the upcoming adventures CLICK HERE. Once you have enrolled, you will receive an email from the Adventure Coordinator with details about the specific adventure. 

Our adventures are given the following ratings to help you determine whether or not you would like to attempt the adventure, and some description of the activity.

  • Easy: These adventures are suitable for those with little or no prior outdoor recreation experience. They are not physically challenging and are appropriate for individuals with pre-existing health conditions. These are generally short, slow-paced adventures.
  • Moderate: These adventures are suitable for those with some experience and may be physically challenging. Depending on the pre-existing condition, these adventures may or may not be suitable for you. These are generally longer adventures, but they move at a relaxed pace.
  • Difficult: These adventures are designed for individuals with some experience in outdoor recreation. They are physically challenging. These are fast-paced and often long adventures.
  • Hard Core: These are for experienced outdoor recreationists only. They will be physically challenging and may require existing understanding of a specific outdoor sport. 

We understand that these ratings are highly subjective. Please contact us with any questions or concerns prior to an adventure. 


Frequently Asked Questions

  • What should I Bring? Not all adventures are the same. Therefore, the email you receive from the Adventure Coordinator will include a suggested gear list. 

  • Where can I view photos that were taken during the adventure? At the end of each adventure, we will post photos on Facebook in an album dedicated to that particular adventure. 

  • May I bring my dog? Sometimes. If an adventure is dog-friendly it will be specified in the description. Please keep in mind that during adventures dogs must be kept on a leash and you are responsible for anticipating your pet's needs. You should plan to bring extra water and snacks for your dog.
