You’re invited to join Blue Ridge Conservancy for group hikes across our northwestern North Carolina region. With a variety of outings for all levels, come along with us to reconnect with nature, learn more about our ongoing conservation work, and simply have some fun with fellow conservation supporters.

This is a great chance to get outside and explore some new places in the High Country that you wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to explore (excluding Pond Mountain, which is open for public access and managed by the Wildlife Resource Commission).
Although on private property, each hike is located on conservation easement lands held by BRC. The landowners all gave special permission for BRC to host each hike.
All hikes are guided by a naturalist and BRC’s staff, and are free to BRC members. Non-members are encouraged to sign up for a membership prior to the hike.
Sign up for a hike here! Each hike is very different, but overall they are all considered strenuous, ranging from 3-6 miles. We meet at 9am, with each hike lasting a few hours, depending on the group’s pace. Directions and hiking logistics will be emailed to those signed up the week prior to the hike. If you are registering more than one person for a hike, please fill out the form for each person.
