This is a group for backpackers serving the Blue Ridge Mountains area. Our focus will be backpacking as we have numerous hiking groups in the area. Please list your level of experience on your profile so that the organizers will be aware that you qualify for an event. We will attempt to schedule a variety of trips ranging in levels of difficulty as well as some events for kids. We will also set up backpacking clinics for beginners that are new to backpacking. So, if you're the type that hates leaving the trail after a day hike, we invite you to join us.
