Here's what people are saying about our hiking adventures:
“I loved this program! Hiking part of the Appalachian Trail was a dream come true. The instructors were SO informative and educational. The hikes were invigorating and staying at the Shawnee Inn was such a treat. If you enjoy brewery explorations, archery, s’mores, and history in addition to some great hiking then this is the program for you!”
“My long time dream came true: I hiked a part of the AT. Our guides Brian, Ken and Sandy were amazing: welcoming, knowledgeable, patient, informative, funny and just wonderful. The hikes were beautiful and we caught the right time of autumn with lots of colorful leaves. I just got back home from the AT yesterday and I am already planning my next Road Scholar Trip.”
