Hiking and Backpacking

One foundational component to environmental stewardship is a love and appreciation for the land, for nature and for life. Spending time outdoors purely for recreation is one way to grow that connection to the earth. Join others like yourself who want to explore and spend time outside.

Hiking Weeks – Join our Road Scholar or Sierra Club hiking weeks to spend your days trekking through the Smokies and your nights back on campus with good music, good food and fellowship.

Backpacking Adventures – For those who want to go a little deeper (literally) into the woods. Pack up your supplies and head out with experienced naturalists at the lead. These excursions are a workout both physically and mentally as you delve into the Smokies backcountry.
