One of the most rewarding opportunities of the summer is discovering more of the Blue Ridge in the company of exceptional guides on this multi-day backpacking expedition. On the trail, you’ll observe and document the wildlife we encounter along the way, including unique birds, trees, plants, insects, mushrooms, salamanders, and many others.

Learn new wilderness skills including meal preparation, orienteering, primitive technology and fire building! Join us on this journey through the highest mountains of the Blue Ridge and experience moss laden spruce-fir forests, shrub balds, and the best vistas in the East!
