Can't make it to Scotland or Switzerland anytime soon to hike those spectacular high mountain meadows? Well right here in the Old Dominion we have the next best thing! Every hiker in the mid-Atlantic should hike Cold Mountain at least once. The 360° meadow views from the saddle are are some of the best on the East Coast. Join us for a one night backpacking experience at Cold Mountain in the George Washington National Forest. Participants will hike through wooded terrain that opens up to 360 degree views from the top of Cold Mountain. Participants will prepare their meals, spend the night at a back country campsite, and learn Leave No Trace camping principles and skills. This is a good trip for beginning backpackers, as well as those with more experienced.

Backpacks, tents, stoves, and other equipment are provided, making this an economical way to discover the joys of backpacking.

A mandatory pre-planning session will be held the weekend before for any girls that have not backpacked with the Adventurers before.

Participants may attend as individuals only.
