A fall weekend of paddling the peaceful New River and hiking two of North Carolina State Parks' jewels: Elk Knob and Mount Jefferson.

About this Event

Join us for a weekend of fun on the trail, in the water and in the campground, on this escape to the northern mountains of North Carolina. We’ll base camp out of New River State Park, which gives us access to great hiking and paddling, which is in our plan for this relaxing weekend in the unusual northern mountains of North Carolina. Unusual, because these mountains are more like the mountains of New England, with sugar maples, yellow birch, American beech, yellow buckeye — even the big-tooth aspen, kin to the popular quaking aspen that blanket the slopes of western mountains in swaths of shimmering yellow every fall. We’ll have great mountain-top views from both Mount Jefferson (Saturday) and Elk Knob (Sunday). Includes:

Camping for both nights
