Roan Highlands
3-Day Immersion


Considered the best hike on the Appalachian Trail in North Carolina, the Roan Highlands offer panoramic mountain vistas, untouched pine forests, and bald 6,000-foot peaks reminiscent more of the Rockies than the Appalachians! On this 3-night small group trip, you will learn the basics of wilderness backpacking while enjoying some fantastic views.

We'll leave Atlanta Friday morning, drop our car off at the end of our hike, and ride a shuttle to the starting point. We'll spend three nights on the trail, with daily mileages low enough for anyone in decent shape.


Total cost for this outing including all preparation consults is $950 per person, of which a $300 deposit must be paid to book your spot. A total of up to 3 participants may register. Scholarships are available for those with financial challenges or significant past backpacking experience.
