Father-Son Appalachian Trail Adventure

The Father-Son Appalachian Trail Adventure is a 5-day backpacking trip across one of the most stunning sections of the Appalachian Trail. And, while we will be hiking during the hottest part of the summer, you can expect to experience cool temperatures on this mile-high ramble! The purpose of this trek is not to see how fast we can go but how deep we can go, so most days are fairly short in distance but long in meaningful experiences. During our time together you will not only strengthen your outdoor skills and nature knowledge but you will also be challenged to go deeper with God, yourself, and others. Be prepared to be stretched in every way… but we’ll have fun doing it! The basic itinerary is as follows…
