Program Details
Roan Highlands on the AT - $140.00

Hike through abundant high-elevation beauty at Roan Mountain, a series of five mountain summits on the Appalachian Trail near the NC / TN state line. With gorgeous views, lush forest and abundant wildflowers, the remarkable beauty of Roan's highlands, knob and bluff make for an exceptional backpacking adventure. We will hike by day and enjoy the night either in a wonderful barn which is a vestige of past times, or under the stars right outside. The stars here are some of the most beautiful we have seen. So, bring you nature guides and get ready to engage with the stars, flora, fauna, and geology of the region. We will talk a bit about camp craft and navigation on our adventure. We can’t wait to have you out for the trip!

Transportation, fees, group gear (tents, stoves, water jugs, etc), and all food except when we are traveling in the van will be provided. You will be responsible for providing Personal Clothing, Toiletries, Bowl/Eating Utensil, Sleeping Bag, and Sleeping Pad. If you do not have your own gear you may rent these items from the Outdoor Rec Center.
