Apalatchi Hikes

Join our experienced leaders for a week of hiking and camping in the Appalachian Mountains. Learn the essentials of Leave-No-Trace backpacking and camping while enjoying the calm beauty of the Southern Appalachians and learning about this unique environment.

Each day on the trail will include several miles of hiking, with time set aside for the practice of navigation and orienteering, introductory lessons on the fascinating ecology and geology of the Appalachians, and learning to cook great food on a camp stove. We'll also have time for reflection, writing, and sketching.

This hiking adventure is a wonderful way for girls to gain self-confidence in an outdoor setting while in the company of leaders who are accomplished thru-hikers and skilled backcountry travelers.
