The Carolina Bound Adventures full day hike is anticipated to be around an 8 hour day. The hike includes a backcountry guide and the outdoor gear! Backpack, hiking poles and basic hiking gear essentials. Picnic style lunch included! We’ll pick a hike based on your desired exertion level, mild, medium or “let’s go for it!” We specialize with individuals and families new to the Western North Carolina / Bryson City / Great Smoky Mountains area or new to hiking that want to get out and hike, but may not have the experience or gear and want a guided adventure. 2 person minimum booking required. All back country guides are wilderness first aid certified and we practice leave no trace protocols. Carolina Bound Adventures operates under a special Great Smoky Mountains National Park permit and holds Commercial Use Authorizations for Shuttles, Guided Hikes and Backpacking.
