Hiking for the Solitude Seeker!

Discover the best kept secrets in the Blue Ridge Mountains when your local guide leads you to places only the locals know about! On this private tour, you’ll get to uncover exclusive, hidden locations off the Blue Ridge Parkway that have yet to be discovered by tourists!


After meeting your guide in the morning at a public location in West Asheville, you’ll follow in your personal vehicle to the designated trailhead off the Blue Ridge Parkway. From there, hike a little-known, 3 mile trail which leads to private, sweeping vistas for which the Blue Ridge Mountains are known. As you soak in the beauty, you will learn intriguing facts about the historic Appalachian mountains.


After regrouping at your car, you’ll follow your guide on a scenic 20 minute drive to an idyllic set of waterfalls that you won’t find on any trail apps! Take your time admiring each cascade as you meander down the trail, each waterfall growing more impressive than the last. As you reach the last one, you’ll set up camp for approximately 20 minutes for refueling, relaxing, and swimming. At the conclusion of the tour, feel free to follow your guide back to West Asheville or stay to explore more on your own.


Lasting between 3-4 hours, this tour allows ample opportunity to explore and savor the hidden gems revealed in the North Carolina mountains!
