Join us on our newest Slackpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail, this one through northern Virginia and West Virginia, from Chester Gap to Harpers Ferry. Like all slackpacking trips, you hike a new section of the Appalachian Trail every day and get picked up at the end for a hot meal, shower, and a comfortable bed.
Our adventures on the Appalachian Trail continue this year as we return to complete more of the Virginia section. For those of you who have done previous sections in Virginia, we’ll be 'connecting some of the dots'. In this section the AT follows the Blue Ridge Mountain Range and offers us beautiful, 360 degree views, rocky and challenging trails.

Who can resist these gentle giants in their winter home of Florida's spring-fed rivers?? On this trip we experience the manatees up close and personal in their natural habitat, viewing them through crystal clear waters as we sit above and among them in our kayaks. This is an ideal trip both for women who know they love paddling and for those who want to give kayaking a try: you'll learn basic kayak strokes on calm waters and by the end of the weekend you will be a competent and confident paddler. Even if you discover you don't like kayaking (which we doubt), the thrill of these wondrous creatures sticking their snouts out of the water beside your kayak, as if to be petted, is simply an amazing experience. $1235 Rating: 1  3 4 5

On this wilderness backpacking trip we travel along one of the Appalachian Trail's most
interesting sections, from Dicky Gap to Elk Garden, at the height of
the rhododendron and azaleas in bloom. This is an ideal backpacking trip for novices: our
moderate mileage leaves time for you to learn everything you need to
know to pursue backpacking on your own. Or if you haven't been
backpacking for awhile, join us to learn about the lightweight
revolution. Our lightweight approach should keep your pack under 30
pounds. $1450 Rating: 1 2  4 5
This section of the Appalachian Trail offers the highest peaks in the White Mountains, windswept ridges, and dramatic views. It also has something more commonly found in the Alps: comfortable huts with a warm bed and a hot meal at the end of the day! This represents a great solution for women who want to hike on the Appalachian Trail but prefer not to carry a backpack. $1595 Rating: 1 2 3 4 .
