The Blue Ridge Mountains outside Asheville, North Carolina aren't on a lot of people's radar, and that is exactly one of the things that make them so incredibly great! That and their amazing waterfalls, plentiful wildlife, stunning views, and wonderful natural and cultural history. Our Blue Ridge hiking trips begin and end in Asheville, one of America's most vibrant and culturally rich mountain towns.
If you're coming to Asheville and looking for an Asheville hiking tour to add on to a longer vacation, we offer fantastic day hikes in the surrounding mountains. A Blue Ridge hiking vacation is well worth a stand alone trip to the area though, in the form of backpacking trips, portered treks, or an inn-based tour.
All trips include top shelf gear, fantastic meals, local transportation and award-winning hiking and backpacking guides.
Wildland Trekking is a permitee of the USFS, Pisgah and Nantahala National Forests
