Hike at the peak of the Fall season in the Great Smoky Mountains. Bright red, orange and yellow hues create a fiery horizon all around Blackberry Mountain beckoning you to explore. Traverse with hiker, author and adventure speaker Jennifer Pharr Davis through a dynamic and inspirational event. In 2011, Jennifer broke the record for fastest time completing the Appalachian Trail and was named National Geographic’s Adventurer of the Year in 2012. That same drive to push forward through long distance hikes will shine through as she uplifts and encourages through an event of adventure and fun.
This group adventure is an experience that goes above and beyond just hiking. The group will embrace the challenges of the terrain, enjoy delicious and nourishing meals, and benefit from enriching conversation together throughout this experience.
Expect to hike diverse mountainous terrain. One of the day hikes will take the group on a three to six-mile experience on Blackberry Mountain, while the other day will feature a more significant distance of 10 to 13 miles, off-property in the Great Smoky Mountains. Varying paces will be accommodated. All hikes are fully supported by the Blackberry Mountain Adventure team.
