See our Small Group programs.

ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

I would like to attend the July 15-20 session, but need a ride from and to the Asheville airport. Is anyone able to give me a lift? Thank you!

That's me above. Not having heard from anyone, I rented a car and would share the cost with if someone needs a ride to and from the Asheville airport.

I'm looking for a ride to Asheville on 6/8/12 when the program ends.

I'll be at the John C Campbell Folk School the week before, just a few miles away. It's unlikely anyone will be coming from that direction. I can get a ride to Atlanta so if anyone is driving to the trip from Atlanta, I would really appreciate hitching a ride with you.

I could use a ride from the John C Campbell Folk School in Brasstown to Hayesville on Sunday, June 3rd. If you're driving that way, I'd be greatful for the lift.

I am scheduled for the 9/11 in Cincinnati OH.
Anyone interested in Ride Sharing..... I can be very flexible with the trip. Send msg to

Hi my name is Carol Pamm I will be attending this trip starting Aug. 28th. I live in NYC and will be flying into Ashville, North Carolina on August 26th to explore the city. I need a ride from Ashville to Hayesville. I'm wondering if anyone else is staying in Ashville or passing through. Will share expenses.
