Staff was extremely attentive to our charter group's preferences. The trails and hikes were moderate, but very strewn with wet roots and rocks, covered by recently fallen leaves. These leaves were falling because we hit the Fall colors perfectly. Very beautiful and very interesting. Most of us preferred fewer educational moments and more hiking, and the staff adjusted to our needs. Great trip.

Hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains in the fall was beautiful. We had two excellent naturalists with us. The hiking was moderate (4-8 miles a day). Strongly urge hikers to bring hiking poles as the trail has lots of tree roots so it's easy to fall especially when they are covered with leaves. I would highly recommend this trip.

This was a terrific program. Beautiful country, learned a lot. Had fun and lots of exercise. If you're in goode shape and love the outdoors, do it.
