Smoky Mountain National Park Trip with Day Hikes
October 20, 2018 @ 7:00 am - October 27, 2018 @ 5:00 pm$600.00
Join Hike It Florida while we take you on a once in a lifetime Smoky Mountain Tour. This trip will give you the opportunity to explore all corners of the park during the peak of the fall color change!
Unlike a normal backpacking trip we will stay in 2 camp locations over the course of the week and take day trips from there. You won’t have to carry a backpack! This is the best of both worlds if you’ve always wanted to backpack, but don’t want to breakdown your camp every night and carry everything for a week.
Your experience will include incredible vistas, gentle cascades, waterfalls, majestic ancient forests, crystal clear mountain streams, old home sites, graveyards and hidden trails. We will explore the high peaks of the Chimney Tops, enjoys the sound while eating lunch at Mingo Falls, and enjoy the changing of the fall colors while relaxing in the meadows near Cades Cove.
We will also spend a day traveling the trails by horseback*.
Each day will be a fun-filled but relaxing day exploring the park while spending each night sleeping out under the stars in a National Park campground. The campsites have restrooms, potable water nearby but NO showers, we have a portable shower available. There is no electric at the campsites, but we can use cell phone chargers in the vehicle. We will have a community breakfast and dinner at the campsite each day and we will provide a bagged lunch for everyone to enjoy on the trail (Monday through Friday). Breakfast, lunch, and dinner from Monday through Friday will be provided. All meals on travel days (Saturdays) will be the responsibility of the attendee. More info regarding a menu will be addressed upon registration.
The cost of the trip is $600.00 per person and includes all transportation from Tampa, Florida, 3 meals** a day including snacks (meals not provided on travel days).
