BCO Smoky Mountains Adventures & Hiking 

We always have fun in the Smokies so we're heading back in 2019!

The Great Smoky Mountains are a mountain range rising along the Tennessee–North Carolina border. The Appalachian Trails crosses them and they form part of the Blue Ridge Province. This is the home of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which was established in 1934, and is home to an estimated 187,000 acres of old growth forest.  It is also home to the densest black bear population in the Eastern United States.  The name "Smoky" comes from the natural fog that often hangs over the range and presents as large smoke plumes from a distance.  The area is so amazingly beautiful and there is so much to do!  

We call it heaven.

We'll be day hiking on the Appalachian Trail and possibly the Bartram Trail.

There are endless numbers of lakes and rivers to kayak (easy kayak rental in the area), the Great Smoky Mountain Rail Road runs daily, Zip lining for those who want, rafting or duckies on local rivers, dining in Bryson City (yum yum) and more.

As a group, we'll fly into Atlanta & rent a car.  Or, you can make this a road trip by carpooling. Last year we visited Chattanooga, Memphis, Nashville and a couple of other cities along the way - it was a blast!  

We will rent a beautiful home that can sleep approx. 8-12 people

We'll share cost on transportation as needed and some food and then enjoying dining in Bryson City also.

 

 

Cost:  We'll share gas, accommodations and some food.  Excursions are on you.  Estimated costs at the time of posting (will update as we know exactly where we are staying):

$315 accommodations per person - $40 gas, $150 misc food

We will rent two vehicles @ approximately 300.00 each.

*optional - airfare (cca. $260) or carpooling costs
