GetBackpacking! Spring 2021

We’ve already had a couple of good backpack trips this year, on the Neusiok Trail in the coastal  Croatan National Forest in January, and on the Appalachian Trail in the Pisgah and Cherokee national forests in February. We have two more weekend trips planned, and will be adding longer trips shortly. So far, here’s our lineup:

GetBackpacking! Early Season Basecamp Trip to Linville Gorge

  • March 12-14
  • $115
Outdoor escapes in 2017 — Linville Gorge
Savording Linville Gorge from Shortoff Mountain

On this early season backpack visit to Linville Gorge we set up base camp atop Shortoff Mountain Friday afternoon, then spend Saturday in day packs exploring the gorge. Sunday, we hike out, then do a 4- to 5-mile hike on the Fonta Flora State Trail before heading home.

GetBackpacking! Intermediate Skills: Going Solo, at Wilson Creek

  • April 9-11
  • $145
Big Lost Cove Cliffs

Curious about whether backpacking by your lonesome is right for you? Our GetBackpackingI Intermediate Skills: Going Solo weekend is a great way to find out — and to explore the Wilson Creek area of the Pisgah National Forest at the same time! On night one, we camp together; on night two, we disperse along a mile-long stretch of trail. You’re never more than a couple hundred yards from your nearest neighbor, and never more than a mile from the instructor.
