About The Event

Ticket sales for this event have been placed on hold until we can gather more information regarding obtaining a permit. We are currently working with the USDA on this.

Starting at Unicoi Gap (mile 52.5), we will spend 5 days hiking north and ending at or Rock Gap (mile 105.7). We will be relocating our passenger van daily to follow the group, which will allow you to carry less gear, clothing, or food than you would traditionally have to carry on a section hike. Think of this as a supported section hike. Our van will be meeting us at various crossroads if you need to drop or add gear or feel like you are falling behind too far from the group.

Day 1-Depart the Midwest

Days 2-Begin Hiking at Unicoi Gap

Day 3, 4, 5-Hike north from Unicoi Gap

Day 6- End at Rock Gap

Day 7-Depart for the Midwest

Daily mileage will vary but anticipate hiking 10+ miles per day.
