Experience the colors of autumn and the wonder of hiking woodland, meadows and stream beds in the Catawba Valley. Our group will “slackpack/freedom pack” (hiking a section of a trail without a fully loaded backpack — an un-hurried and non-goal-oriented manner of long-distance hiking) on the Appalachian Trail 6 miles over Sawtooth Ridge on Saturday, tent overnight at 4-Pines Hostel, and then hike 4 miles over Dragon’s Tooth on Sunday.
Participants may attend as individuals (with adult/parent). Adult/parent will need to stay during the program.
