This classic Appalachian Trail hike will be one to remember. We start in trail town, Erwin Tennessee and snake along the Tennessee, North Carolina border for 50 miles. On the way we will:
We are taking a relatively slow pace with distances of 7-10 miles per day so we can enjoy the views and the experiences along the trail. However, there will be significant elevation gains and losses throughout the hike, so good conditioning will be necessary.
Price includes transportation in club van, hostel fees for three nights, 8 meals on the trail, shuttles and other supplies. You’ll be responsible for meals on the road and at the hostels. Practice hikes and a possible overnight conditioning trip will be planned by the group.
