Trip Overview

The glorious Appalachian region of the Carolinas is surrounded by over one million acres of green, rolling mountains, rushing rivers, craggy rock faces, and cascading waterfalls. Learn to rock climb at Looking Glass Rock, backpack through Pisgah National Forest, and take on the Nantahala and Chattooga Rivers. Then, head east to the shore to explore the low country coastal areas of Charleston by sea kayak and surfboard. Explore the finest crags and coastlines the southeast has to offer, all while making lasting friendships in the great outdoors! Wilderness Adventures is a permittee of Pisgah National Forest.

On my Blue Ridge trip, I learned to appreciate and respect the wilderness and the wildlife that inhabits it. Being able to experience the wild outdoors was my favorite part of the summer.
