That’s why we offer private, customized hiking tours, so you can get exactly what you want out of your time in Western North Carolina! We can tailor your experience to fit the time frame, difficulty level, scenery, and area that fits your needs!


With so many choices for trails and scenery, it can get overwhelming trying to navigate which are the best hikes near Asheville, NC! Having a local hiking guide make suggestions and lead the way ensures that you and your party will walk away fully satisfied.  Whether you’re looking for more advanced trails away from the crowds,  or you are trying to find the best views for that NC fall foliage with no hiking at all, we will work together to find the right combination. 


Private, customized hiking tours take the planning and logistics out of the equation for you, so all you have to do is tell us your wish list, and we’ll take it from there; leaving one less task on your “to-do” list!

If you are staying in the Asheville area, you will meet your guide at a public meeting location in West Asheville. When you receive your booking confirmation email, you will receive the exact location for where to meet your guide. We also ask that you follow the guide in your personal vehicle. This allows for greater flexibility if guests choose to continue their adventure after the tour concludes.


Please contact us if you are staying outside of Asheville and would like to meet your guide at the designated trailhead at 9:00 AM
