Experience gorgeous winter trails in Asheville
Find out why Asheville locals LOVE hiking in the winter! Join us on tourist-free trails as we take in lovely winter hues and enjoy hot chocolate and tea in the remote wilderness. At our meeting place, start the morning with the fresh aroma at Asheville’s Ultra Coffee, where we will meet before your tour. After a 45-minute drive will reach Pisgah National Forest. We spend 4 hours exploring the best of Pisgah, visiting multi-tiered waterfalls, hidden pools, rock overhangs, and more!
Your guide will integrate hikes (according to your interests) for a total distance of around 2.5 to 3 miles, walking at a leisurely pace and discussing the edible and medicinal properties of unique trees and wildflowers along the way! For inexperienced hikers, your guide will be sure to provide you with tips for navigating the roots, rocks, and mud that give our Southern Appalachian rainforest its character.
