winter wonderland hikeJoin NC Outdoor Adventures as we hike the Appalachian Trail through a Spruce Forest up onto one of NC's most beautiful balds, Roan Mountain. This is the highest point of the Unaka Mountain Range where weather and temps can change on a dime. There you will enjoy a 360 degree view of our majestic mountains followed by hot coco or cider along with smores around a campfire if the weather conditions permit. Along the hike your guide will provide you with unique plant and history facts about the area!

Guests will be provided with yaktrax, a friction device that attaches to boots and is used to keep you from slipping on ice or snow. Participants should expect a 3-5 mile moderate hike as we visit 3 of the mountains 5 peaks. 

Important note: dress for cold weather, bring layers, wear good hiking boots with warm socks.  We recommend folks that have knee issues or problems with walking please bring hiking poles or a walking stick. DO NOT WEAR ANYTHING COTTON! In the rescue world we call cotton worn in winter death cloth as once it is wet it stays wet and increases chances of hypothermia. Wool layers are best and even stay warm when wet!
