Blue Ridge Hiking Company reviews
My 14 year old daughter and I did a guided hike on the John Rick trail with Eli. Eli was a wonderful guide. He was the perfect blend of fun, safety and information. He engaged my daughter and... more »
This was our first hike in the mountains and wanted a company that would give us an experience we wouldn't get on our own. We booked an afternoon private hike. Jen was our guide and she was great... more »
We had a stunning three day trip along a section of the Appalachian Trail. I cannot say enough good things about our guide, Christine, and about Blue Ridge Hiking Company. They are amazing. Christine took us through a breathtaking section of the Blue Ridge Mountains, from Hot Springs to Max Patch. I'd go back there - with this company - in a heartbeat. Christine planned out the trip so carefully, and her whole approach to the mountains - leaving no trace; understanding the flora and fauna; allowing us to identify the pace but ensuring that the journey challenged us (without getting to breaking point); teaching us about camping in the mountains - if you want a guide who is very smart, generous, and most importantly, loves the land and who will imbibe you with the same spirit, she is your gal. We will be going back as soon as we can. Did I say that enough times? It was that good. BTW, you can rent TERRIFIC gear from them - don't bother lugging yours down, because the lightweight, warm, ingeniously designed selection that they offer as part of the trip planning is better than yours. Trust us.
Great selection of boutique backpacking and hiking gear, including from lots of local and North Carolina companies!
