Smoky Mountain Backpacking Adventure
Hike through sweet smelling pine forests and across mountain ridges on our 4 day women-only Backpacking Tour in the Smoky Mountain National Park. You’ll spend 4 days exploring the vast trail system of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park leaving behind the hustle and bustle of day to day life. Depending on our route, you may find yourself trekking along the Appalachian Trail, enjoying 360° views from a fire tower, delicately crossing rivers, splashing in a waterfall, or mindfully taking a moment to bask in a horizon of mountains from a bald ridge. And, let’s not forget that permeating sweet smell of Pine that simply fills your soul with all that is the outdoors. Aaahhhh! Of course, the best views are earned. Our daily hikes can range from 7-13 miles and 1,500-3,000′ elevation gain per day. This backpacking trip is for our Explorer Chicks who love a good physical challenge while also enjoying some quality time re-wilding and connecting with other adventurous souls. Adventure Highlights: • Spend 4 days backpacking through dense forests, across balds with stunning views, and along rushing creeks. • Challenge yourself physically with backpacking ranging from 7-13 miles and 1,500-3,000′ per day depending on our route. • Disconnect to reconnect! Leave behind the constant contact and use your phone solely for capturing moments. • Depending on your route trek the Appalachian Trail, cross steams, climb a fire tower, bathe in rivers, and chase waterfalls. • Simply show up to a fully planned backpacking trip with your gear. We handle the rest! For full Details and to book: Join the Facebook Event to meet Explorer Chicks from other cities! Don't forget to follow Explorer Chick on Facebook too!
