Join Blue Ridge Hiking Company on a 3 day/ 2 night Slackpacking Trip along the Appalachian Trail
Cost: $400 per person
Cost includes all rental gear, food for your time on trail and a guide will be meeting you at the end of each day with your overnight gear.
The point of "Slackpacking" is to allow you to enjoy backpacking without carrying the heavy backpack. You'll still be hiking each day and camping each night, but instead of carrying a heavy pack, your guide will meet you at the end of each day with your overnight gear and then will take it away again in the morning. Your guide will not be hiking with you each day, but they will be camping with you each evening.
Since you won't be carrying a heavy backpack, you'll be able to do more miles more comfortably than you would if you were backpacking. Here is the mileage you will be doing:
Friday: 7.1 miles
Saturday: 14.3 miles
Sunday: 14.4 miles
