Privately Guided Sunset Hike

Privately Guided Sunset Hike

Join us for an evening hike featuring one of the most beautiful aspects of our area - our sunset! We will start hiking while it is still daylight, and hopefully catch a sunset at a western-facing peak close to town. Snacks are provided while we watch sunset. After sunset, we'll hike back down to the trailhead. The hike will likely finish in the dark, so we provide a headlamp for each participant to use during the trip. We have a couple of hike options to choose from - ranging from 1.5 to 5 miles and from easy to moderate in difficulty. You'll work with your guide to select the best hike location for you! Our most popular sunset location is a 3-mile out-and-back moderate hike, just a 15 minute drive from our office in downtown Asheville. Exact start time will fluctuate throughout the year, depending on sunset hike and your chosen hike location. Curious about the other hikes we offer? Check out our website.

Slate Rock Trail Running Tour

Slate Rock Trail Running Tour

star-5
1
Pisgah National Forest is the oldest of its kind in the eastern US. With over 500,000 acres and 1,600 miles of trail, some of the best overlooks and waterfalls are often overlooked. We will meet at Ecusta Brewing, then you will follow me to the trailhead, a ~30 minute scenic drive including a bit of dirt road. 2-wheel drive vehicles will have no problem, the road is well-maintained. Starting at the trailhead, we will run a ~7 mile loop with 1,400' of vertical. The run climbs its way up to one of the best overlooks in the forest, and may include a visit to a trailside waterfall depending on road/trail closures. Towering over the Pink Beds Valley, the overlook includes views of nearby Pilot Rock and the distant high peaks of the Great Balsam Range. I would argue that the views are far better than John Rock, Cedar Rock, or even Looking Glass Rock. Its limited popularity is due mostly to its remoteness and difficulty to navigate due to several unmarked trails along the way.
