The Experience

Did you know that our Southern Appalachian Highlands are smoky and blue because of the terpenes released from our evergreen trees? Did you know that the Cherokee call this place Shaconage (Sha-Kon-O-Hey) which means "Land of Blue Smoke/Mist"? Can you tell the difference between Mountain Laurel and Rhododendron, or a Maple and an Oak tree? Do you know Appalachia's highest peaks like old friends and recognize them from from a distance? Our guides do and they are ready to share their knowledge and love of the world's oldest mountain range with you and your crew! Join us for a private day hike and not only will we show you the areas most epic spots, we'll explore local history and folklore, identify flora and fauna, and reminisce about the ridge lines in view so you have a greater sense of place, and a list of follow up adventures! Our private day hikes include lunch on the trail and are available to book all year long. For Private Day Hiking Experiences we request $500 for up to 4 people and $100 for each additional person up to a total of 10 guests.
